Here is another beautiful Crock Pot Recipe – perfect for those super busy days! You CAN prep this ahead of time in a freezer bag by putting ALL the ingredients in, removing as much air as you can and sealing shut. Simply thaw the night before cooking, pop on low all day, so you have dinner in a jiffy.
You can also make it just like the instructions say. It’s got a bit more “zip” if you add the sauce ingredients half way through like this shows.
Crock Pot Orange Chicken
2 lbs cubed chicken breast
