This recipe calls for boneless chicken breasts, but I substitued regular chicken thighs and it was still delicious. From the Southern Food site at about.com.

Chicken was very dry and did not need to cook for 5 hours. We could hardly swallow it. The sauce was ok, it resembled Chinese food. We did not care for this at all and won't make again. I was looking forward to something different but was a waste of time and money.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the chipotle with adobo sauce, marmalade, chili powder, garlic powder, vinegar, honey, chicken broth, and oil.
  2. Wash chicken and pat dry; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken breasts in the slow cooker; pour marmalade mixer over all. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 7 hours, or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Put the chicken breasts on a plate; cover and keep warm. Pour the liquids into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 5 to 7 minutes, until slightly reduced. Combine the cornstarch with cold water until smooth; stir into the sauce and continue cooking, stirring, for about 1 minute longer, or until thickened. Serve the chicken with the thickened sauce.
