Healthy Crock Pot Orange Chicken

Well, the holidays turned into an unexpected hiatus from the blog! So sorry to all my lovely readers...I missed you!
 
After Christmas I went and visited Joe in his hometown...and then we drove the 10 hour drive back to Madison together. He's a saint and drove most of the way, leaving only 2 hours for me to cover! Can't complain about that at all. I've also been super busy at my real-life job also because the grand opening of my store is TOMORROW!! I'm ready for it..mostly so I stop thinking at night before bed about all the things I should do the next day. Seriously, no matter how many lists I make AT work, I always come up with new things I need to get done.
 
Other than that, Madison has been one cold, mean lady lately. Today was -40 degrees F. Enough said.
 
Here's a great recipe for you to try out, whether its cold where you're at or not!
 
Crock Pot Orange Chicken
Serves: 4
 
Per usual, I'm a bad food blogger and didn't snap a pic.
This is what it looks like though! Credit goes here!
 
Ingredients:
  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast (cut into cubes)
  • 1 cup, 100% Orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tsp Marjoram Leaves
  • 1 Tbsp wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 small oranges (or cuties)
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
Directions:
  • Add the chicken breasts to the crockpot.
  • Mix orange juice, honey, marjoram leaves, wheat flour and 1 Tbsp soy sauce together in a bowl. Pour over chicken.
  • Cook on LOW for 6 hours, or high for 3.
  • Open the crockpot and stir, add oranges and cook for additional 15 minutes.
  • IF you would like a thicker sauce, follow these steps:
    • While waiting during the 15 minutes, combine remaining Tbsp of soy sauce with 2 Tbsp corn starch and 1/4 cup broth from pot. Stir until no corn starch lumps remain. Pour into crock pot and stir. This creates a thicker sauce. If you want even more thickness, repeat.
  • Serve over top 1/2 cup brown rice and enjoy!

  1. Do you think you could add veggies during that last 45-30 minutes of cooking? Or steam some and then stir in?
