Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup onion puréed
  • 2 tsp garlic, crushed
  • 1 29-ounce can of sliced peaches, drained
  • 1/2 cup peach jam or preserves
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground white pepper black pepper may be substituted
  • 2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 lbs chicken thighs, about 8 pieces
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds, optional, for garnish

Instructions

  • Purée 1/3 of an onion in a food processor or blender until you have ¼-cup of purée.
  • Use a garlic press to crush 2-3 peeled cloves of garlic, giving you 2 teaspoons. If you don’t have a garlic press, peel your garlic and lay it on a cutting board. Then carefully crush it by pressing down on it with the flat side of a kitchen knife.
  • Add all ingredients (except the chicken and sesame seeds) to a bowl and stir together to form your sauce.
  • Place chicken in slow cooker. Pour sauce over the chicken.
  • Cover and cook for 6 hours on high.
  • Top with sesame seed garnish and serve.

FROM FROZEN:

  • Empty contents from freezer bag into a crock pot and cook 6 hours on high.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and serve with rice or butter noodles.

Notes

Use a gentle touch when removing the chicken thighs from the crockpot. This allows each piece of chicken to stay beautifully intact when serving.
Make your thighs look extra pretty by broiling them for a couple minutes right before serving.
