In a small bowl, mix the arrowroot powder and water.
Pour mixture into sauce in slow cooker, cover, and cook on high for 30 minutes*. The sauce will thicken up. **Alternatively, if you don't want to wait 30 minutes for the sauce to thicken, you can pour the sauce into a small saucepan and then add the arrowroot mixture, bring to a boil and then simmer a few minutes. This will thicken up the sauce in 5 minutes or less.
Once the sauce has thickened, return chicken to slow cooker and stir to coat.
