Orange Cherry Chicken

This sweet and spicy chicken dish is different enough to make your tastebuds wake up and say, "Hmmmm!" It's delicious!

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 5 hours
Servings: 4-6 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 cup frozen tart cherries, thawed

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger root

  • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

  • 3-4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (or, if you're not as squeamish as I am about taking meat off bones, a 3-4 pound fryer chicken, quartered and skin removed)

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon orange zest

  • 1 pound bag wide egg noodles

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2-3 tablespoons brown sugar


Directions

Stir together cherries, onion, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and garlic in slow cooker. Place chicken on top. Pour orange juice over the chicken and top with orange zest.

Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours.

Cook egg noodles according to package directions.

Meanwhile, use a slotted spoon to remove solids from sauce. Melt butter in saucepan. Whisk in flour, a little at a time, until golden and bubbling. Add liquid from slow cooker a little at a time, whisking constantly, until smooth and thickened. Stir in brown sugar and return chicken, onions, and cherries to the slow cooker.

Serve chicken mixture over noodles.
