Chipotle-Marmalade Chicken

 Chipotle-Marmalade Chicken
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
