Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine frozen vegetables and tapioca. Add chicken.

  • In a small bowl combine chicken broth, orange marmalade, teriyaki sauce, dry mustard, and ginger. Pour over mixture in cooker.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 2 ½ hours (see Tip). Serve with hot cooked rice.


Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
