  • 1 ½ lbs chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger or ½ teaspoon dried
  • ¼-½ teaspoon red pepper flake
  • 2 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water
  • Chopped green onion for garnish optional
  • White sesame seeds for garnish optional


  • Add chicken pieces to crockpot.
  • In a bowl, stir the orange marmalade, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, soy, ginger, and red pepper flakes together until combined. Pour over the chicken. Cook on low for 4 hours or on high for 2 hours.
  • Mix the water and cornstarch together. Pour mixture into the crockpot during the last 10 minutes of cooking, replace the lid so it comes up to a slight boil and thickens. (If you are cooking on low, switch over to high for the last 10 minutes).
  • Serve over rice and garnish with white sesame seeds and green onion.


Pro tip: As you’re serving your chicken there will be some sauce left at the bottom of your slow cooker. Don’t forget to spoon this out and drizzle it over your chicken and rice!
