    DrGaellon's Note:

    Inspired by Cranberry Orange Chicken - Crock Pot, but made my own by making fresh cranberry sauce. If using frozen cranberries, they do not need to be thawed; they can go right in the pot from the freezer. The sauce is delicious over rice or mashed potatoes. I like to use Reynolds Slow Cooker Bags to line my pot, and fold the top over before putting on the lid; this traps the steam inside, and makes cleanup much easier.

      In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine cranberries, orange juice, 1/2 tsp mustard powder, ground ginger, sugar and crystallized ginger, if using. Cook until most of the berries have popped and sauce is thick, about 10-15 minutes.

      Remove from heat and stir in diced onion, 1/2 tsp mustard powder, cinnamon, lemon juice, honey and chili sauce.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place in slow cooker. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover and cook on low 6 hours or high 3 hours.
    4. 4
      Add orange slices but do not stir. Cook on low another hour, or on high another 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir cornstarch into water. Drizzle into sauce in slow cooker. Cook another 10 minutes on high or until thick.

      had a ton of leftover cranberry sauce from TG. this was a great application for it. i just added in all the seasonings called for. used chicken thighs (fatty skin removed). plus a bit of coriander & cumin & a little cayenne for kick. didn't need the cornstarch, as it was plenty thick. family loved it. will definitely make this again.
