Easy Crockpot Orange Chicken
Author: 
 

Ingredients
  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 3T vinegar (such as rice wine vinegar)
  • 2T cornstarch

Instructions
  1. Put the chicken in the crockpot. Mix the other ingredients together and pour over chicken.
  2. Cook on High for 3 hours.
  3. Pull out chicken and set aside on a plate. Pour liquid into a saucepan, add 2 T cornstarch and whisk thoroughly to mix. Heat sauce on med/high until bubbly and thickened.
  4. Optional: You may wish to add some veggies at this point, such as sugar snap peas or celery.
  5. You can serve the chicken breasts individually over rice with the sauce, or you can shred them and add them to the sauce and serve over rice.

John and I both thought it came out a little too orange-y for our tastes. I would like to try it again with maybe some chicken broth added to thin the orange juice and try sugar snap peas as a vegetable instead of celery, (it was kinda weird with the orange flavor.)

This was a super easy recipe, and I definitely recommend giving it a try! I’m looking forward to experimenting with a few variations on it and may be back to edit this post with my creations in a few weeks. ;-)

Thank you, Hannah, for sending this in!

I would have never thought to use frozen orange juice for this. Great idea!
