Crockpot Orange Chicken Recipe

Crockpot Orange Chicken
I'm sure you've noticed the number of chicken recipes on this site. You've also probably noticed there are quite a few crock pot recipes. That's because I'm basically a lazy cook. I want a big payoff as a result of very little work. By work I don't mean the amount of time it takes to cook. I mean the amount of effort it takes to prepare.  Crock pot cooking takes time, but very little work. Take this very good knock off of the popular oriental Orange Chicken Dish. So...yes, this will take some time to cook… but it doesn't take that time to to fix it. You can make this and your wife will love you for it. Your kids will clean up the dishes, and your neighbor will cut your grass. A great dinner, not much effort.

Quick And Easy Crockpot Orange Chicken

 Like all my recipes, it's best if you plan on preparing enough to serve everyone. They say the recipe below makes enough for 8. Not at my house.  This is enough for four… maybe 5 people. You can figure one breast per person...and then throw in two breasts just to be safe.  Regardless of the numbers, that figure has always worked out for me. There was never any left overs, and nobody said they were still hungry.  So let's start with what you'll need.

Ingredients

  • 4 lg. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (approx. 3.5 lbs.)
  • 6 Tbsp. Flour
  • 2/3 c. Smuckers Sugar Free Orange Marmalade
  • 2/3 c. Jack Daniel's BBQ Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. Kikkoman Light Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Ginger, fresh grated (or jarred)

Directions

  • Put chicken and flour into a bag and toss together. 
  • Place the chicken in the crockpot. 
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, cover and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours, or on high for 3 - 4 hours.
That's it. And I guarantee you're going to like it. 

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
