Slow Cooker Ginger Orange Chicken

IMG_4995

Hello hello!

So this recipe post will be quick as I have lots of work to get to now that the semester has gotten started. I posted a photo of this dish on the social media and I got a lot of people asking for it so I thought I’d get it typed up for the blog. It’s super simple, as any slow-cooker recipe should be. It’s a modification of the Ginger Orange Chicken found in the Against All Grains cookbook. I ended up making changes in order to make it Whole30 compatible and because I didn’t have some of the ingredients that the original recipe called for on hand. Enjoy this!

Ingredients
  1. 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  2. 3 TBS coconut aminos (or soy sauce if you use it)
  3. Orange juice from one medium orange (about 2-3 TBL)
  4. 2 TBL tomato paste
  5. 1 TBL toasted sesame oil
  6. 2 cloves garlic
  7. 1 inch fresh ginger, minced
  8. ½ tsp sea salt
  9. ¼-½ tsp red pepper flakes (depending on your tastes)
  10. ⅛ tsp cracked black pepper
  11. garnish: sesame seeds (optional)
  12. garnish: sliced green onions (optional)
  13. garnish: raw cashews (optional)
Instructions
  1. Throw the chicken into the slow cooker.
  2. Put the coconut aminos (or soy sauce), orange juice, tomato paste, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, salt, red pepper flakes, and pepper into a bowl and mix well.
  3. Pour mixture over chicken and mix to evenly coat.
  4. Turn slow cooker on low and allow to cook for 4-5 hours.
  5. Spoon over rice of your choice (I made cauli-rice) and top with garnishes or your choice. **
Notes
  1. *I suggest making a larger batch of this for leftovers. This dish is tastier the next day after the flavors set into the chicken even more.
  2. **The original recipe calls for you to spoon the juices from around the chicken into a pan and heat it until it reduces and thickens. I did this the second time that I ate it and it was a nice change in texture.
