Crockpot Orange Chicken

First off, I apologize that I don’t know where this recipe came from. If it’s yours, please let me know and I’ll give you credit.And now to this awesome dinner we had the other night…

• 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
• 6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate (thaw or throw it in the microwave for 45 seconds)
• 4 T brown sugar

In a bowl, mix the orange juice, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, and ketchup.
Pour the flour in a small bowl.
Cover the chicken breast chunks in flour and shake off the excess.

Pour a small amount of olive oil in a skillet and brown the flour-covered chicken.
The chicken doesn’t need to be fully cooked since it’s going in the crock pot.

After the chicken is done cooking, pour the pieces into the crock pot.
Then cover the chicken with your sauce mixture and give the pot a stir.

Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-3.

Serve over rice and even add veggies if you want a healthier meal.

  1. I like how this looks and I had all ingredients but I tell ya this is for sure not a meal to make during the week if u have to work early. there is no way you can prepare the chicken the night before because the breading will get very soggy and disgusting. This is just a very long process. I am lookin forward to seeing how this tastes, It is cooking in my crock pot now :)

  2. This recipe was not good at all. I followed the instructions to a “T” and it came out as a gooey orange juice flavored mess. I do not recommend it.

  3. I followed the recipe correctly and I still came out a soup-y mess. I don’t know what I could have done differently, but it didn’t look at all like the photo, very disappointing as I was looking forward to a sauce that was similar to the picture.

    1. Maybe they nead to be seared for longer so the chicken doesn’t fall apart. I’ll try it sometime this week and post the results

  4. I skipped the crockpot aspect and had good results with the chicken. Using half a can (6 oz.) of orange juice concentrate was WAY too much sicky orange flavor. We added soy sauce and that calmed the acid bite down enough.
