NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 orange, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs (5 to 6 thighs)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1 -inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 ounces thin rice noodles
  • 1 bunch watercress, tough stems removed, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Directions
  • Lay the orange slices in a 6-quart slow cooker. Toss the chicken with the flour, lemon zest, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl; add to the slow cooker in a single layer. Combine the chili sauce, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a bowl; pour over the chicken.

  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on low, 7 hours. Uncover and gently stir, breaking up the chicken into large pieces; let stand 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook as the label directs. Drain; toss with the watercress.

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Serve over the noodles and top with the cilantro.
