Orange chicken is probably my favorite food. When we go out, if it's on the menu, I order it. I can't resist. I've made it a few times and while I have never acheived restaurant quality, this is pretty darn good.
It wasn't until after I'd made it that I realized that I've already made this. Or at least something super similar. I love anything in the crock pot and was excited to find this. Again. I actually made a double batch and shredded the leftover chicken to use for salads for the week.
Slow Cooker Orange Chicken
Adapted from Mom's Crazy Cooking
2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts, chopped into chunks
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. ketchup
6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup brown sugar
In a bowl, mix the OJ, brown sugar, vinegar, salt and ketchup. Dump the chicken in the crockpot and add the sauce. Cook for 4 - 6 hours on low until done.
**Alternate method: Bread chicken chunks in flour and brown in a skillet before dumping them in the crockpot. I skipped this part because I'm lazy!
