Peachy Garlic All day Chicken Thighs

Tonight our group of card players decided to throw ourselves a pot luck dinner. Just 5 or 6 of us putting together something to share and have fun.

Your food will always taste better when you sing as you cook! And the best seasoning to add at the table will always be laughter. Add plenty!

  • 4 to 10 chicken thighs (sauce remains the same amount)
  • ½ cup low salt soy sauce
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/3 cup peach preserves
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 can sliced peaches in juice.


Not much to do the night before: just thin slice the onion and run a knife into it a few times so it is not all stringy.
Day of dinner: wipe out the crock pot and spray with cooking spray.
Sprinkle some of the cut up onion in the bottom of pot.

Lay chicken thighs into the bottom of a slow cooker. Put the rest of the onion on top.

Whisk soy sauce, BBQ, preserves, garlic, and seasonings together in a bowl; pour over the chicken. 

Cook on Low for 4.5 to 5 hours.
Heat oven to 400.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish. Carefully transfer the chicken pieces to the dish. The meat will be very tender. Drain and add the can of peaches around the chicken.

Scoop out some of the sauce to a pan with some cornstarch slurry. Heat to thicken and pour over thighs. (or just mix more BBQ sauce with peach preserves) pour this over the top.
Bake for 15 or 20min on 400 degrees. (this is a great time for roasting any vegetables to go along with).
This can get a nice crusty glaze by finishing under a broiler for about 5 minutes.
For this meal a bag of frozen corn was thawed, mixed with 2 tbs of olive oil, spread on a pan and sprinkled with salt. Slide this in the oven along with the chicken. It will be done at the same time. You don't have to tell them how you got that “right off of the roasted ear” taste. But it is so easy, why not?

This was a nice quick get together that was so much fun. Nobody had that much work to do and all could just enjoy it.

Too bad I couldn't talk them into dancing!

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
