I love me a good crockpot recipe!  There is just something so amazing about having dinner come together with barely having to lift a finger!  This recipe is one that I came up with when the Chicken Farmers of Canada challenged us ambassadors to use chicken, ginger ale, quinoa and mango. For some reason, the first thing that came to mind was this crockpot recipe…and it turned out amazing!  SO delicious!

After cooking in the crockpot, the chicken comes out tender and sweet, making it perfectly delicious served over steamed quinoa and topped off with a fresh mango salsa.  This dish tastes fresh and so flavourful!  And I love that the meat is made in the crockpot…easiest dinner ever.

  1. Most recipes I have for chicken (even bone-in) are for 2-3 hours on high. I’m curious why 8-10 for this one. If I crock this for six hours, will I need to pre-cook the chicken?
