Crock Pot Orange Chicken

I came up with this recipe out of sheer desperation. I wanted me some ORANGE CHICKEN!! Living in a rural area is great until you want something that is an hour drive away. I thought to myself, "how hard could this be? " Self answered, "not that hard!" Give this a try the next time you have to be gone all day. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


6 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 T pepper
6 cups orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 T soy sauce
4 T cornstarch
2 cups mandarin oranges
Steamed Rice

Put chicken, ginger, salt, pepper and orange juice in slow-cooking crock pot and cook on high for 6 hours. The last hour or so I add in 4 T cornstarch to 1/8 cup of the cool orange juice just to thicken up the sauce. Serve chicken over hot steamed rice on platter. Top with mandarin orange segments .
