You're probably most familiar with this dish from Chinese takeout: greasy, overcooked, and sticky sweet. We've updated this classic for the slow cooker with a glaze that’s a perfect balance of savory, sweet, and fragrant (from a combination of soy sauce, hoisin sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, brown sugar, and orange juice) and chicken that’s tender and succulent. The key is to infuse the chicken with those flavors while it cooks slowly, then strain and boil the liquid into a syrupy glaze. Serve over steamed brown or white rice with a simple side of steamed or sautéed snow peas.
