Slow cooker marmalade chicken

    3 hours 10 min

    Don't be put off by the title - this is a super easy and flavourful slow cooker recipe to try. It has a variety of spices that balance out the orange flavour. Lovely served with broccoli and rice.

    Followed the instructions and got exactly what you would think marmalade chicken might taste like. Save your time and money and DON'T make this recipe.  -  24 Feb 2016


    This was beyond exceptional - I loved it! As other reviewers suggested I added a can of coconut milk an hour before it was finished cooking. The flavors in this dish are layered and complex and yet simple to prepare. I tasted every spice and nothing more prominent than the other, this was simply fabulous. I know I will make this again as we finished all of the chicken tonight and thats unusual for a first time dish.  -  19 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is so wonderful, my husband loves it, I love it not only for the taste but for the sheer fact I can start it at noon and not have to worry about it. The only change I made was in the last 30 mins to an hour of cooking I add coconut milk which gives the sauce a wonderful creamy texture. I serve with brown rice, naan bread, mango chutney & chopped onions. Definitely a keeper. Thanks.  -  16 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
