Crock Pot Orange Marmalade Sesame Chicken

Another experiment and idea of mine came out so awesome this week…Who needs take-out Chinese food when you can just make this! Its a much healthier versions….Next time I think I might add 1 tbsp lite soy sauce and more zest…but otherwise this was delicious. I made Brown rice and then drizzled with dark sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds on top….:)

1-2 lb boneless skinless dark thighs,  seasoned and browned in onion and garlic and placed in the crock pot

1 orange juiced and zested

1 jar of marmalade preserves

1 tbsp ginger

2 tbsp honey/agave nectar

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 cup shredded carrots

1/4 cup lite soy sauce

1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Placed all the other ingredients on top of the browned chicken and covered and cooked on low for 6-8 hours.

Top with sliced scallions or bean sprouts.. And of course additional toasted sesame seeds
