Chinese Orange Chicken

This recipe is dedicated to my MIL...BZ...she reads Hazel's Crockpot, and always wants to know why I don't have any pictures of what I'm making. This is because a lot of the recipes I post here are ones that I find in my recipe box that I've had and made over the years. Some, I've never made, but came across and they sounded tasty, so I posted them. So today, I will not only have a delicious recipe for you, but I will have pictures to show you just how easy this recipe is...

And just for you BZ, I will try to this more often...Hugs...

So, Hubs and I love Chinese food, but, like everyone else, we are trying to cut back on expenses. Not wanting to give up our Friday tradition of Chinese food, I started doing a little searching and found this wonderful recipe...

Chinese Orange Chicken

8 boneless skinless, small, chicken thighs
3 Tablespoon flour
1/3 cup orange marmalade
1/3 cup original bottled barbecue sauce, any brand is fine, just make sure it is the original flavor
2 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger root, grated

rice and vegetables of your choice








Place chicken thighs inside a large ziploc baggie. Pour flour into the bag, seal and shake to coat.







Then pour chicken and flour into the crockpot:





In small bowl mix the rest of the ingredients, pouring over chicken when done...











Stir to coat chicken with mixture. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours (HIGH 3 to 4 hours). Serve with rice and steamed vegetables of your choice.


**I know the recipe calls for 8 small chicken thighs, but I couldn't find small ones, so I cooked these 5 medium to large ones and will cut up once on the plate



Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs!
