We love the combination of chicken with dried fruit. This easy recipe uses just five ingredients. The dried fruit combines with the honey, broth, and vinegar to make a delicious chutney that pairs perfectly with the tender chicken thighs.


  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup mixed dried fruit pieces
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 onion, chopped

Steps to Make It

  1. Place all ingredients in 4-5 quart slow cooker.

  2. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours until chicken is tender and thoroughly cooked.

  3. Serve over hot cooked rice or egg noodles.

  • Do not use bone-in pieces of chicken because the recipe may not work. Bone-in dark meat chicken cooks very differently from boneless in the crockpot.
