Honey Orange Chicken by alfagee.

Gayle’s Honey Orange Chicken

8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs — frozen
1/2 cup honey
1 cup orange juice
1 cup chicken stock or broth
2 tsps. worcestershire sauce
2 tsps. fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp. wasabi paste
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 12 oz pkg. frozen broccoli cuts
2 tbsps. cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup orange juice (optional)


1. Put the frozen chicken in the bottom of the crockpot. Good luck prying it out of the package.
2. Whisk together all the ingredients, up to the broccoli. You won’t need the broccoli until later and it will just muck up your whisk, anyway.
3. Pour the liquid mix over the chicken. Put the lid on, set your crockpot to either low (cooking time is about 7-8 hours) or high (5-6 hours) depending on how patient you are. Now, walk away.
4. About one hour before you want to eat, throw in the frozen broccoli. Do not stir. Cover the pot and walk away again.

Wow, the honey orange chicken sounds great! Have you made this before, Sandra? I'm wondering how important the wasabi is. I don't have that on hand but have everything else....

Have a great day!

That sounds really good. I love things with citrus, the more the better.

Hope Jasmine is feeling better now.
