I tried a new recipe in my slow cooker. I found this Orange Chicken recipe on Pinterest using marmalade as the base. I have a glut of my whisky marmalade in the store cupboard so in the spirit of using up what's in there, I gave it a go. I also used some of the frozen chicken pieces.
7 chicken pieces (I didn't even defrost them)
3/4 cup of marmalade
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons Tamari soy sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
Quickly brown the chicken pieces and add them to the slow cooker with a splash of water. Combine the other ingredients and add. Cook on High for 2-3 hours (less if not frozen I guess)
It was very sticky and had a slight BBQ flavour. The 7 pieces fed 3 of us with stir fried rice and veggies.
I quickly popped into Sainsbury's this afternoon after gym with OH (he needed milk and cat food but ended up with 2 full bags of shopping AND realised he'd forgotten the cat food!!!) I got a kilo of mince with a yellow sticker and also had a coupon for £1.06. So only paid £3.43. It's currently bubbling away as a batch of bolognaise sauce for the freezer.
And look who's been stealing my raspberries!!! I know grey squirrels are the scourge of our native red ones but he was so cute despite being caught in the act :-)
