Recipe adapted from The Pursuit of Happiness.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it was a great idea. I do love any thing that can be made in a Crock Pot. This was definitely easy and I found it delicious. I served it with white rice and stir fry vegetables that I cooked in oil and a little butter. The sauce for the orange chicken becomes nice and thick without being sickly sweet like some orange chicken can be. Also keep in mind that browning the chicken well is important so it stays together, but cooking it completely is not necessary. I recommend giving this a try!
