Crock Pot Orange Chicken

Crock Pot Orange Chicken - it's simple and delicious. Another great dinner recipe! { } Chicken pieces breaded and flavored with lots of seasonings.

I have another great recipe to share with you today, and I think you’re going to love it!

Not sure if you have noticed, but I’ve shared quite a few Asian recipes with you over the past few weeks. I do this during this time of year for those who celebrate the Chinese New Year. I’ve blogged about my love for China and my special connection to the country, so this holiday is something I always celebrate with my little family, and they love it. Back in Arizona we would always go to the Chinese Cultural Center during the celebrations for great food, Kung Fu and Fan Dancing Performances and shopping. It was so fun! Unfortunately, we haven’t found anything like that here in Houston, but we still celebrate with great food and some family festivities.

One of the new delicious recipes we’ll be making is this one for Crock Pot Orange Chicken. I have always LOVED Orange Chicken and making it in the crock pot makes it even better! You need to make sure the chicken has that yummy breaded taste first which requires some work before it hits the crock pot, but it’s fairly simple. You can also serve this with rice or noodles, whichever you like most. 😉

Here is the delicious recipe:

Crock Pot Orange Chicken
  • 1½ pounds boneless chicken, cut in 2-inch chunks
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup panko
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 TB kosher salt
  • 6 ounces (1/2 can) frozen orange juice concentrate(no pulp), thawed
  • 3 TB brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 3 TB ketchup
  1. In a small bowl mix egg and milk.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix your flour and panko. In 5-10 piece batches, soak chicken chunks in milk mixture then in flour mixture, Repeat this twice.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil on the stove and brown your chicken on all sides. You will not be fully cooking the chicken, just giving it a nice coat. Place the chicken pieces into your slow cooker
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine orange juice concentrate, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, salt, and ketchup. Add more sugar if you prefer a sweeter taste. Pour sauce evenly over the chicken, and carefully toss to coat.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or on high for 3 to 4. Serve warm over the rice of your choice.

    Thank you Kristyn.

    Hi Kristyn, your Orange Chicken looks delicious. My family loves Orange Chicken, and I like finding new recipes. I like yours because of the balsamic and ketchup. Most recipes I’ve tried use orange marmalade, and I don’t usually have this in the pantry all the time, unlike ketchup and balsamic, they are staples in my pantry.
    Thanks for sharing. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I am confused on the crockpot orange chicken- so you soak chicken then flour and then put it BACK in the milk again? and back into flour again? or are you saying to repeat twice – in meaning that you do all ONCE but in two batches? love your recipes!

    My 10-year old made this sauce but used regular salt instead of kosher. Regular salt has twice the density as kosher salt and so the sauce was gross. Maybe you could alter the recipe and put “or 1/2 Tbps regular salt” so others don’t make this error.

    Hi! Will be leaving home super early (5 am eek!) but wanted to leave dinner in the works on “Low”. Could I do the breading & frying the night before then throw the sauce & everything else together the morning of? Looks SOOO yummy! Thanks!

      Hi Lourdes! I haven’t tried it that way before but I think it would be just fine. If you could let me know how it turns out I’d appreciate it so others could do the same thing if they needed to. 😉

    When it comes to making money online, methods such as
    You – Tube, ebooks, and others are almost considered old school.
    And, while you are mastering marketing, you could be developing your own product to
    sell in the future, or better yet, have others sell for you.
    Like I said, the real trick is that they promise some low cost help and then sign you
    up for a free trial to their club or clubs.

    Could this be made ahead and frozen? Or made to a certain point, frozen, then finished in the crock pot? I’m having surgery in 2 months and will be out for about 3 months. Looking for lots of freezer meals! Thanks

    Earlier day’s people were not much smarter today the people are becoming smarter in the world.
    Magazines – These glossy newspaper-like mediums are
    expensive and cannot be afforded by everyone and like the newspaper, all of the information posted
    there costs a lot that is why almost all the news
    in it are summarized and cut short. The bikes are able to reach super fast
    speeds in excess of 200 mph and whilst having global coverage,
    I think it would be fair to say that Spain has embraced all forms of Motor Bike Racing including
    F1 Motor Cycle racing as almost its own as the support
    for it is simply huge and could be described as a national sport.
