I know many of you are waiting for a tour of the new house but… it’s just not ready yet. I’m trying and trying to get everything put together, but it’s taking a LONG time! And I don’t want to reveal anything until it’s perfect. 😉

This recipe is incredibly simple and easy, so it was perfect for saving me some time to put towards organizing.

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Spread onion on the bottom of the Crock Pot. Place chicken thighs on top. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low 6 hours or high 4 hours.

Crock Pot chicken is the BEST! Crock Pots do something magical to chicken (all meat, really). It’s so tender and falling apart. The sweet flavor in this, with just the slightest hint of kick, was also really good. It would be interesting to make this using different flavors… maybe some orange marmalade or pomegranate jelly, and see how it turns out!

Since Easter is just a few days away, here are a couple Easter recipes to try out!
