Tasty Tuesday | Crockpot Orange Chicken

Standard

Crockpots are one of the best inventions ever. I love the time saver it is and the easy clean up.

This recipe has been made multiple times since hubs and I got married. It’s easy, yummy, and pretty healthy!

I serve over a bed of rice and broccoli that I make in the microwave.

Enjoy!

You will need 4 things:

3/4 c. orange marmalade
3/4 c. honey BBQ sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Two ways to cook it that both work well. (I opt for number 1).

1. Throw it all in the crockpot way – Put all of the above ingredients in the crockpot for about 3 – 4 hours on low. I use a smaller crockpot so the juices are really soaked up. Before putting the chicken in cut it into large bite sized pieces, pour everything else in and stir so everything is mixed together. Will be done and really sucks up the sweet goodness in that time.

2. Take a little more time way – Put the chicken breasts in whole into the crockpot and cook on low for about 3 hours. Drain the juice left after that time. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix, and pour into the crockpot over the chicken and cook for about 30 min., then serve. This way is a little less sweet but a bit more work, your choice, they are both good!!
