• 16-ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 3/4-cup low-sugar orange preserves ( I like to use the one with pulp in the preserves; adds texture )
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger, or to taste (I use just a little less than 1/8 teaspoon in mine)
  • toasted sesame seeds


  1. Lightly grease crock pot insert with cooking spray.
  2. Place chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock pot, one next to another, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine orange preserves, soy sauce, garlic and ginger; mix until combined.
  4. Spoon or pour over the chicken.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours, or on HIGH for 3 hours.
  6. In the meantime, prepare the sesame seeds.
  7. In a frying pan, heat the sesame seeds over medium heat, shaking the pan frequently, cooking just until fragrant; about 30 seconds. Set aside.
  8. Remove chicken from slow cooker and transfer to a plate.
  9. Spoon the orange sauce over chicken.
  10. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
