  • 4 pounds bone-in chicken pieces, skin removed
  • For the Pineapple Orange Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup natural ketchup
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade (lower calories, use sugar-free)
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown mustard
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce, optional, for additional heat
  • To Thicken the Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water


  • Place the sauce ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Place the chicken in the slow cooker and pour the sauce over. Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.
  • Carefully pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Pour in the cornstarch slurry, whisking continually until the sauce is thickened. Pour the sauce back over the chicken. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes and your choice of veggies.
