Crockpot honey chicken with dried fruit

So I think I'm going to give this a try but with bone in skin on thighs because they are much cheaper:
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup mixed dried fruit pieces
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
Cook for 8-9 hours on low in a slow cooker

It's basically cooked chicken with honey and dried fruit. I think the recipe needs to explain what goes where in the crockpot -- I know usually you put the veggies on the bottom, but what about the honey and the chicken broth? Do you pour them in on top of everything? Should the fruit go on top of the chicken so as to flavor it, or underneath so it gets moist?

You've already made it now, but IMO the idea of a crockpot is throw it all in at once and leave it. ;-)

Right, I just meant what goes on top, like usually I put the veggies on the bottom and the meat on top then pour on some broth or water. Wasn't sure about the honey. I think the honey should probably have gone on top of the meat, the onions below the chicken, and the dried fruit would probably have been best on top as well. But I probably won't make this one again, it was way too sweet!
