Tasty Tuesday ~ THE Orange Chicken
THE Orange Chicken
We are still laughing over the fact that I became so obsessed with making a delicious Orange Chicken that I pulled out my tri-crock and actually made 3 different sauce combos at one time to see which we preferred… as we tasted and discussed the sauces we realized that no one in my family had ever actually had Orange Chicken so we are not even sure what it is supposed to taste like… but we did make a variation of sauce that was so refreshing, a bit tangy, a bit sweet and A LOT delicious – and we all agreed and couldn’t wait to make it a meal!
HERE it is… throw it all in the crock pot, or in a freezer bag to cook later.
I cooked mine in the crock on low for about 6 hours… then I actually threw it all in a skillet and ‘stir fried’ it for a few minutes to get the sauce to thicken… an unnecessary step but made for some amazing carrots I’ll tell you!
The more chicken you use, obviously the more you could feed….
We served this over rice… SCRUMPTIOUS!!!
