~~Crockpot Citrus Chicken~~

This chicken turns a beautiful gorgeous brown color and is so moist and delicious.

3 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. Tamari sauce (can sub Soy)
2 tsp. finely minced ginger root
4 lb. whole roasting chicken
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 whole orange, sliced (I have used tangerines, lemons & limes too...alll very good)
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup orange juice

PREPARATION:Rinse chicken thoroughly and drain well. Pat the chicken with paper towels to dry well. Stuff garlic and orange slices inside chicken. Spray a 4-6 quart crockpot with nonstick cooking spray and place chicken inside. Combine honey, tamari and gingerroot in small bowl and pour over chicken. Cover crockpot. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. The chicken should be fork tender and thoroughly cooked; 170 degrees into the leg or thigh on an instant read thermometer.
Remove chicken from crockpot and cover with foil to keep warm. Mix cornstarch and orange juice in small saucepan and add the juices left in the crockpot. Mix well, transfer to a saucepan, and cook over medium high heat until the sauce boils and thickens, stirring frequently. Serve chicken with sauce. 6 servings

Oh, I've roasted a whole chicken in the crockpot before. It works so beautifully, and this recipe sounds like a delicious way to jazz it up! Yummy!
