I'm nuts about Orange Chicken but it's usually soooo high in calories. Making it yourself, you can control the calorie count. See the notes at the end for how to cut down on the sugar and an optional cooking method.

Ingredients:

  • boneless chicken breasts, chopped into small chunks (I used about 4)
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate (thaw or throw it in the microwave for 45 seconds)
  • 4 Tbsp. brown sugar

Directions:

In a bowl, mix the orange juice, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, and ketchup.

Pour the flour in a small bowl. Cover the chicken breast chunks in flour and shake off the excess.

Pour a small amount of olive oil (I use coconut oil) in a skillet and brown the flour-covered chicken. The chicken doesn't need to be fully cooked since it's going in the crock pot.

After the chicken is done cooking, pour the pieces into the crock pot. Then cover the chicken with your sauce mixture and give the pot a stir.

Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-3.

Serve over rice and even add veggies if you want a healthier meal.

Notes:

If you're cutting down on sugar, you can mix Truvia with a Tbsp. of molasses to make the 'brown sugar'. Because remember, there is a lot of sugar in ketchup, balsamic vinegar, and the OJ.

Also you can cook this in the oven at 400 degrees F for 30-40 minutes too. You can even do this in a pan on the stove; just cover and cook on med low for about 30 minutes.
