Crock Pot Orange Chicken

Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker · February 9, 2015

Crock Pot Orange Chicken - it's simple and delicious. Another great dinner recipe! { lilluna.com } 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, whicheverย you like most.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

I love orange chicken. Especially if it can be made in a crockpot!

Liz

Thank you Kristyn.

Christine

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!

Calchick

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!

    Stephanie

    yes- milk, flour. milk-flour. it is building up a layer to make a thick breading on it.

Peggy

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.

Lourdes

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!

    Lil' Luna

    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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thankyou for this recipe!

Arguably the best page and game undertaking that is most, military that is controversial is the Army in America.

Elaine

Please include nutrition facts. I need to know the carbs

Sarah Geyer

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

What is Panko?

    Rachel S.

    Japanese breadcrumbs. They’re extra crispy. You can usually find them close to the fry mixes on the flour isle in most grocery stores.

linda birman

Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog
before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and
I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

Applebee’s restaurant used to have an Orange Chicken Bowl. Served on a bed of rice with almonds, it had just a mild to medium hot spicy coating. They no longer make this, at least not in Michigan. If you have had this and could provide a clone recipe, I would love to have it!

    Lil' Luna

    Sounds yummy!! I don’t think I’ve tried it, but I will have to see if our Applebee’s has it!

Rachel S.

Is there anything I can substitute for the frozen OJ concentrate? There is something the concentrate that triggers my migraines. Could I use fresh squeezed and just increase the amount?

    Lil' Luna

    I personally haven’t tried, but it should be ok ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d love to know how it comes out! Thank you!!

Rahul Hacker

Omg! Gotta try this! Mmmmm! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Lil' Luna

    I hope you do!!! I’d love to know what you think! Thank you!

Peg

I know it won’t taste as good but could this be tried with frozen chicken nuggets? Maybe you could fry them first to brown then put in crockpot…What do you think?

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried. Not sure I would. They are very different and taste different. You could always try?! I’d love to know what you think!
