Fresh blackberries, ginger and garlic combine to create a main course dish with Asian flair. There’s hardly any prep work involved. If you can crush a blackberry, you can make this Slow Cooker Blackberry Chicken!
Searching for an easy weeknight meal to serve your family? I’ve got you covered! This Slow Cooker Blackberry Chicken is the answer to the ridiculous “What’s for dinner?” question you’re likely hounded with several times a week, if not a day. My three year old will ask me no less than five times in the hour before we eat what exactly I’ll be feeding her. I’m thinking of hiring an airplane to write our weekly menu in the sky. Surely that would keep her attention… Right?
When I say easy, I mean if you can crush fresh blackberries with the back of a fork, that’s all the manual labor that’s required for this flavor packed main dish.
Soy sauce, ginger and garlic lend a bit of an Asian flair. This is not your every day, absolutely ordinary chicken dish. No, sir!
And the garlic and ginger I mentioned? I made this slow cooker meal even easier by taking a shortcut!
As I’m usually putting dinner into the slow cooker as I’m getting breakfast for the menagerie and then getting us all out the door to school, I don’t have extra time to be mincing garlic and grating ginger. Enter Dorot Garlic and Herb Cubes. Natural, pre-measured, and pulled straight from my freezer.
Simply pop the frozen cubes of garlic and ginger into the slow cooker and call it a day. Bonus points for my hands not smelling like garlic at 7 am, either.
In case you didn’t notice, the juices of the blackberries will give your chicken a lovely purple hue, especially on the lower half that has been submerged in the cooking liquid. Before serving, I like to rotate the chicken to give it a bit more even coloring. I know it sounds crazy, but you eat with your eyes first. Right?
