Tell me. Tell me you’re guilty of spending too much time on Facebook watching 60-second “Buzzfeed Food”, “Tasty” and “Tip Hero” videos.
Tell me that your tummy rumbles as you witness the ooey gooey delicious snack foods, main courses and desserts be created with astonishing clarity before your very eyes. Tell me that you gaze at the calorie-laden, mostly-overloaded-with-cheese dishes and think, OMG that looks soo good.
Me too, friends… me too.
However, I wasn’t necessarily inspired to try to recreate one of the dishes until recently. It was Family Day, dinner was up in the air, and I really didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. So, like a sign from heaven, I happened to scroll across Maple Leaf Prime’s Facebook post:
“At home with the family today? FYI there’s still time to make this Slow Cooker Bourbon Street Chicken from Tip Hero for dinner tonight. #delish”
I couldn’t believe it. I actually had all the ingredients on hand! And since it was 2:00PM, I had just enough time to pop them into the slow cooker for four hours. I rushed downstairs, followed the ridiculously simple recipe, and that night, we had the most delicious Family Day meal!
(Confession: I don’t know how to make this meal photograph well. But I promise, it was scrumptious. That was just one of three Bourbon Street Chicken sliders that I had. And I want another right now!)
This easy chicken recipe is sweet, saucy and packed with flavor. Plus – it’s a slow cooker dish! So, you can spend your precious minutes with your family, not slaving over the stove. Here’s how.
8 Maple Leaf Prime Naturally boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
pinch red pepper flakes, optional
chopped green onions, for garnish
In a medium bowl, mix the garlic, ginger, apple juice, brown sugar, ketchup, cider vinegar and soy sauce together.
Place the chicken thighs into the slow cooker; pour the mixed sauce over the chicken, then use tongs to coat the chicken thighs in the sauce. Cook on high for 3.5 hours.
In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 2-3 tablespoons of water until the cornstarch has dissolved. Remove lid from slow cooker; add to chicken mixture and stir with tongs, breaking up the chicken and shredding it. Replace the lid and continue to cook on high for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with red pepper flakes (optional) and chopped green onion. Serve with steamed rice or as sliders. Tip: it tastes even better the next day!
