Crock Pot Citrus Ginger Chicken

“This is one of my favorites. The flavor is best if you marinate the chicken in the sauce overnight or freeze in the sauce and thaw in the fridge overnight before cooking. This can also be baked in the oven in around 30 minutes. Serve over a bed of aromatic rice such as jasmine or basmati rice with a mix of steamed vegetables on the side.”
