Directions

  3. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine plum sauce, melted butter, and five-spice powder. Add chicken pieces, stirring to coat with sauce.
  4. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours or on high-heat setting for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
  5. Serve immediately or keep warm, covered, on warm- or low-heat setting for up to 1 hour. If desired, sprinkle with slivered green onions.

Whenever I see a recipe with lots of butter:
in pastry I replace half the quantity with grated apple, which adds moisture and has the added benefit of browning well.
In baking like this I reduce the amount proportionally and substitute half with a healthy fat of coconut oil.
Hope that helps.
