A delicious and tangy orange chicken that is made right in your slow cooker! This is better than takeout and a meal that the entire family will love!
I love two things a whole lot in this world. My slow cooker, and Chinese food. So whenever I make something that has to do with both of those things, I am in heaven.
I have made this recipe several times for my family. I updated the pictures today (04-1-15). But I did one thing differently. I first cooked the chicken in cornstarch and oil on the stove top. This one simple step will make a world of difference. It only takes a few minutes before, and it adds a breading around the chicken that is amazing! I have made it before without doing this step, and it is still yummy! But I highly recommend it.
With the added outside breading, it helped to thicken up the sauce. The breading soaked up all of the amazing flavors. My now 7 years old who has been eating it since he was 4, gobbles this down every time. And he is such a picky eater. If he loves it, then I am convinced your family will too!
A quick and easy slow cooker meal that tastes just as good as take-out!
