How to Make Crock Pot Orange Chicken

Place the chicken in the bottom of the crock pot. Stir together all ingredients aside from the chicken, then pour the sauce in on top of the chicken and stir to coat. Next, cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours!

The chicken is ready once the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. You can also shred the chicken at this point, and then stir it back in the sauce to re-coat it all before serving. 

Then, serve with your desired sides (rice, vegetables, etc.) Optional: top with sesame seeds, chopped green onions or red pepper flakes.
