Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 lb chicken legs
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup pineapple jam
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp fresh grated lemon peel
3/4 cups pineapple chunks, drained

In a small shallow bowl combine the preserves, jam, soy sauce, ginger, and lemon peel; dip chicken legs, one at a time, into the mixture and place into a crockpot or slow cooker.  Pour any remaining mixture over the chicken.  Add the pineapple chunks and mix thoroughly.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 4 to 6 hours or on high 2 to 3 hours.

Remove chicken and the pineapple chucks to a broiler pan.  Broil approximately 10 minutes until chicken is browned.  Turn to brown both sides!
