Orange Marmalade Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

This slowcooker recipe is just perfect for a chilly winter night. You can substitute marylands for the chicken thighs, choose whichever is cheaper at the butcher.

4 medium sweet potatoes, cleaned and roughly cut even sized chunks
6 chicken thighs, skin off
1 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup chicken stock
salt and pepper to taste

Put prepared sweet potatoes in crockpot, add salt and pepper to taste.  Arrange chicken thighs on top of sweet potatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Mix orange marmalade and chicken broth together in separate bowl, then pour over the chicken.  Set slowcooker to low and cook covered for 6 to 8 hours. Check after four hours, if the sauce is too thick add another 1/2 cup boiling chicken stock. Spoon sauce over top of chicken when serving.

I serve this dish over steamed savoury rice or with mash, green beans and corn.
