This is one of the simplest weeknight meals I make: white and brown rice mixed (in the rice cooker), orange-ginger chicken breasts in the slow cooker, and green beans (organic frozen: I saute them in the frying pan with olive oil and sea salt).
I borrowed this recipe from Diethood, but of course have made it my own (I'm not sure what's "diet" about it--it's just really good flavors).
- 4 chicken breasts, with no skin
- 3/4 c. orange marmalade (I sometimes use Korean yuzu/citron)
- fresh ginger, grated
- salt and pepper
- minced garlic cloves
- oil for greasing the liner of your slow cooker
- 1/4 c. soy sauce
- for topping: toasted sesame seeds, sliced green onions, red pepper flakes
Grease your slow-cooker liner, place the chicken breasts inside, and in a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients except for the toppings. I cooked mine on low heat for about 5 or 6 hours.
Serve over rice with the toppings, and make sure you don't put the red pepper flakes on your childrens' portions.
