Chipotle-Marmalade Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
Big on flavor and easy on the cook's time, this slow cooker chicken recipe is appealing. The sweet-hot sauce gets its heat from the chipotle pepper. I serve this dish with a side of rice to use up every delectable drop of the sauce. —Cittie, Tasteofhome.com Community

MY REVIEW

I made this recipe several times several years ago and my husband and I both loved it. Then my dad moved in with us, and I couldn't make spicy dishes. I have missed this dish and came looking for the recipe today. I used apricot preserves instead of marmalade and a little more salt. I like to cook this stove top as much if not more than in the crock pot so the chicken does not overcook.

Made recipe exactly as written. My family all agreed, it was okay but nothing we'd go out of our way to eat. It did have a nice little kick and you could pick up the taste of the orange, but somehow it still wasn't really flavorful.

Our family really liked this. I will need to find another recipe that calls for the peppers in adobe sauce as the recipe calls for such a small around and it was the most costly item of the ingredients. I cut the chili powder down based on the reviews and ours still had a kick to it.

Ok, kind of bland. Probably wouldn't make it again.

To make this even more diabetic friendly, try using agave instead of the honey. Honey is not good for diabetics.
