Orange Roasted Chicken in Crock Pot

This meal is so nice for Sundays! you can stick it in the crock pot and it's done when you get home!

Cut up your chicken into pieces.. about 3 pieces per chicken breast.
add to crock pot.
then add your spices: salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and savory.
add about a 1/2 c of chicken broth and fresh squeezed orange juice..or you can also add orange slices!
diced onion: about 1/2 of a white onion
then add your glaze:
in a pan, add: 3 tbsp butter, 3tbsp dijon mustard, 3 tbsp honey, about 1 tbsp of apricot jam..or in my case I used pepper jelly (deliciously made by a local vendor), and about 3tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice. let boil for a couple minutes and simmer for a few more.

plug in your crock pot and about 3-4 hours later you have dinner!

opt.. you can also bake this dish: just bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes
