Orange Chicken - Crock*Pot Cafe 9

As you know, I just love my slow cooker!  It is so easy to just throw some ingredients in it and let it cook dinner for me.  Oranges were in season when I made this, so I decided to devise my own healthy, fresh, orange chicken crockpot dinner! I used my small crockpot, but you can easily double, triple, or quadruple the recipe and just place it in a larger slow cooker.

Slow Cooker Orange Chicken


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (mine were frozen)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • juice of 4 naval oranges
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 clove grated garlic
  • 1 1/2 inch knob of ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Mix together zest, garlic, ginger, oil, honey, and juice together in bottom of your slow cooker. Add in chicken breasts.  Toss in sauce.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Serve with rice.  Enjoy!
