Orange Chicken


Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE the crockpot?  It is SO easy, and I enjoy easy.  I found this awesome recipe for Crockpot Orange Chicken from TheFrugalGirls.com.  I'm not a big oriental food eater, but this was right of my alley.  I made a little extra because my mom and mother-in-law came over to enjoy this homemade dinner! 

Ingredients:
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup orange marmalade
1 cup barbeque sauce (I used honey BBQ)
2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce


1. Cook the chicken in the crockpot on high for 3 hours (or low for 6-7 hours).


2.  After the chicken is cooked, drain the juices.  

3.  Mix together the orange marmalade, BBQ sauce, and soy sauce.  Pour the mixture over the chicken and cook on high for an additional 30-45 minutes (covered).  



I served my chicken with brown rice and some pot stickers.  No, pot stickers aren't healthy - but we have so many in our freezer from our wedding and we rarely have them, so this was the perfect opportunity.  This would also be great with some stir-fry veggies. 




ENJOY!
