Orange Apricot Ginger Chicken

I make up some chicken in the crockpot EVERY week, so I have it for lunch and an easy snack/extra protein. I’ve been getting bored with the same old chicken so I decided to switch things up for once.

Ingredients:

2 lbs. chicken breast

2 cups dried apricots

about 15 ounces of baby carrots (or really as many as you want!)

2 tbs. cinnamon

1 tsp. salt (more to taste)

1 tbs. ground ginger

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. paprika

2 oranges

Mix the spices up (feel free to use more, with spices I just tend to go by what looks and tastes good). Sprinkle them over the chicken then place the chicken in a big freezer bag. Squeeze the juice of the 2 oranges into the bag and place the squeezed up oranges in the bag too. Put in fridge and let sit for 2 hours and up to overnight.

Place the chicken into your crockpot and add the carrots and apricots. Mix everything so that the carrots and apricots get covered in the juices, too. At this mixing point, I would sprinkle on some more salt (another tsp? Smell the food, if it smells like it is lacking, add more spice! šŸ™‚ ).

Set your crockpot to low for 4-6 hours, until chicken is done- moist and delicious.

Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)

  1. This sounds wonderful! I love slow cooker meals, so I’ll have to give this a try.
