Chinese Crock pot Orange Chicken
Makes 3 servings

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tbsp peanut oil
1 medium sized orange
1/4 cup ketchup
1 cup orange juice
1 tbsp orange marmalade
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp cornstarch
1. Remove all of the fat from each of the breasts and then sprinkle
them with the salt and pepper.
2. In a large pot, heat the oil on high. If you have a slow cooker
with a stove top safe insert, then
heat the oil in this.
3. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook until both sides of
each breast are brown about 7 to 9 minutes on
each side.
4. Once the chicken browns, remove the breasts from the pot and place
them in the slow cooker.
5. Without wiping out the pot, use a micro plane grater to grate
about a teaspoon of orange zest from the orange into
the pot.
6. Then add the marmalade, orange juice, ketchup, and ground ginger
and turn the heat on low. Stir constantly until everything is thoroughly
Then bring the sauce to a light simmer.
7. Once it simmers, pour the sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker.
8. Cover and turn the crock pot on low and let it cook for 8 hours.
9. After 8 hours, remove the chicken breasts and place them on a
serving plate.
Cover them with foil to keep them warm while thickening the sauce.
10. In a small cup, mix the cornstarch with just a little water until
it dissolves.
11. Then pour the sauce into a pot, or again if you have a slow cooker
with a stove top safe insert, then simply place it
on the stove.
12. Heat the sauce on high. Once it begins to come to a boil add the
cornstarch mixture and stir.
Keep stirring until the sauce thickens.
13. When the sauce is thick, remove it from the heat. Remove the foil
from the chicken and pour the sauce on top just before serving.
14. This goes great with white rice and stir fried broccoli.
