AWESOME and Easy Orange Chicken

It is a rare occasion in our house that I make Chinese food anymore. When pregnant with Big A I had a major aversion to all Chinese food. As soon as he was born, I started liking it again. He however hates Chinese food. I have tried many things, rice, noodles, fun apps it doesn't matter Big A hates it. This latest recipe was REALLY good! Simple to make and very flavorful. Big A said "Mommy, this is NOT very delicious!" but don't take his word for it (It IS yummy!)

Easy Slow Cooker Orange Chicken


• 3-4 boneless chicken breasts, chopped into small chunks
• 1/3 cup flour
• olive oil
• 1/2 T salt
• 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
• 3 T ketchup
• 1/2 Can frozen orange juice concentrate thawed (6 oz.)  
• 4 T brown sugar

Put Flour and chicken in a ziplock bag,
seal and shake to coat chicken.

Add olive oil to skillet and brown chicken
(Don't worry about it being fully cooked
as it's going into the slow cooker)

Mix all remaining ingredients to create sauce

Put browned chicken into slowcooker,
cover with sauce and stir to coat.
Cover and cook 5-6 Hours on Low, 2-3 Hours on high

Serve with your favorite Asian sides...
rice, noodles (or both!)
Argggg Pirates hate Chinese food Momma!
