Top Recipe for Sweet Orange Chicken


This came from the  magazine "Taste of Home. For me  the "Taste of home" recipes always  look way  better  in the magazines  than they taste. This was no exception,  and if your think this recipe is going to taste  like the  orange chicken that you get at "Panda express" you will be very disappointed..  One thing  you really need to known is, if you don't lightly spray the crock pot with a vegetable oil before adding the ingredients the sauce burns on the sides of the pot and adds a bitter taste to the dish,  be sure the wipe the sauce off the sides of the crock pot. Also hickory smoked barbecue sauce will turn the dish kinda bitter. Use a sweet barbecue sauce  for a much better favor or even  hoisin sauce.

Prep: 15 Min.
Cook: 6 hours
Serves: 6

3 Tbsp. all- purpose flour
1 Chicken broiler/fryer (3 to 4 lbs.) cut up and skin removed
1 Bell pepper chopped (optional) 
2/3 cup orange marmalade 
2/3 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. minced fresh ginger root 
Hot cooked rice
1 Place flour in a large plastic bag.Ad chicken, a few pieces at a time,and shake to coat place in a 6-qt slow cooker.
2 In a small bowl, combine the orange marmalade, barbecue sauce, soy sauce and ginger; pour over chicken. Cover and cook low 6-8 or until chicken juice runs clear. server over rice or rice noodles.
