Slow Cooker Soy-Citrus Chicken (FOOD NETWORK MAGAZINE conversion)


1 orange, halved and thinly sliced
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs (5 to 6 thighs)
1 tablespoon tapioca starch
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup sweet chili sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon GF soy sauce
1 1 -inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 ounces thin GF rice noodles
1 bunch watercress, tough stems removed, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro


Lay the orange slices in a 6-quart slow cooker. Toss the chicken with the tapioca starch, lemon zest, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl; add to the slow cooker in a single layer. Combine the chili sauce, honey, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a bowl; pour over the chicken.

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low, 7 hours. Uncover and gently stir, breaking up the chicken into large pieces; let stand 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook as the label directs. Drain; toss with the watercress.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Serve over the noodles and top with the cilantro.
