1/4 cup blackberry jam
2 Tablespoons olive oil

Sliced scallions, for garnish
Place all the chicken in the crockpot. In a bowl, whisk honey, tamari, blackberry jam, olive oil & garlic. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover the crock pot and cook the chicken on high for 5 hours. Carefully remove all of the chicken to a plate. Remove skin/bones and using 2 forks, shred the chicken. Put the chicken in a bowl. Remove liquid from crockpot and strain into a pot over medium heat. Whisk in the cornstarch/water and boil a few minutes to reduce. Strain this through a sieve. Pour the sauce over the chicken, stirring to evenly mix. Pour as much or as little as you’d like!!! Top with scallions!! Serve over rice! Add some chopsticks for fun!
