Orange Crockpot Chicken


Chinese + food = delish. It’s one of my most-liked cuisines besides; Amercian, Mexican, and last but not least Italian. And I have no doubt with the combination of cooking and blogging this will continue to grow lol. Furthermore, I have a few most-liked Chinese dishes, some of them are; chicken fried rice, lo mein, wonton soup and of course fried orange chicken.

This crockpot orange chicken has a delicious twist on the traditionally fried and breaded dish, this Orange Chicken is so flavorful, wholesome, and it’s all done in the crockpot! Need I say more? I think not so…umm well!!?? What are you waiting for? Grab them ingredients and let’s do this! You only need, like, 7 things, including salt and pepper.

And ohhhh guess what??? It’s only 200 calories per serving. Just Sayin’. Again.

ENJOY! 😀

Orange Crockpot Chicken

Ingredients

16-ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts
salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
3/4- C. low-sugar orange preserves
1/4 C. low-sodium soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 C. sesame seeds

Let’s get cooking! 😀

Method

Lightly grease your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.

Rinse chicken with water and pat dry. Next season with salt and pepper then place chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock pot, one next to another. In a small mixing bowl, combine orange preserves, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger; mix until combined. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours, or on HIGH for 3 hours.

In the meantime, prepare the sesame seeds. In a frying pan, heat the sesame seeds over medium heat, shaking the pan frequently, cooking just until fragrant; about 30 seconds. Set aside. Remove chicken from slow cooker and transfer to a plate. Spoon the orange sauce over chicken. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
