This Recipe Will Make Your House Smell Good

Day 23.

Time to get the slow cooker out. It's a cold, dreary Georgia day. It's the perfect weather for slow cooked food.

Citrus Chicken in the Slow Cooker

serves 6


  • 6 pieces of chicken (I used 3 individually quick frozen -IQF- chicken breasts and 3 IQF chicken thighs)

  • 1 cup sherry

  • 3/4 cup dried fruit (I used dried cherries)

  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade

  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves

  • 1 vidalia onion, sliced into thin rings

  • 1 lemon, sliced into thin rounds (remove seeds)

  • 1 orange (I used honey bells, which are in season now), sliced into thin rounds

  • the juice of one orange

How it's Done:

  1. Place the chicken in the slow cooker. Top with sliced onions. Pour sherry over top of chicken and onions. Dot marmalade on top. Slice orange and lemon and arrange the rounds on the chicken and onions. Sprinkle ground cloves on top of that, then pour the orange juice over everything.

  2. Cover and cook on low 8 hours.

  3. Serve over brown rice.

boy that sound delicious!! I can only imagine that the smell is heavenly as well. I have to go the store today, if lemons are on sale I'm pretty sure this will be making an appearance in my kitchen and dinner table soon :-)
