We love crock pots around here. I have several and they get tons of use.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook for 4 minutes on each side until each side is browned. You may need to work in batches.
(If you have a Ninja Cooking System, you can brown everything in the same pot. We love ours because it means less clean up.)
Add the chicken to the slow cooker once it is finished.
Meanwhile in a small bowl whisk together the orange marmalade, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and minced garlic.
Pour the sauce over the chicken and stir to coat in the crock pot.

This way I always have some cooked rice on hand for recipes that require it or for a quick side dish in not time at all.
Freezing rice is so easy and saves me tons of time in the kitchen. If you aren’t freezing rice, you should be! It is a huge time saver.

The sweet orange sauce is so delicious with the broccoli. It is one of our favorites veggies to eat with this recipe.
