Orange Chicken

I love it when I can find new and tasty recipes.
I love it even more when they are simple and easy to prepare.
The beauty of this dish is that it can be prepared two different ways, depending on how much time you have to spend in the kitchen or just what method you prefer!
Options, people. How great is that?!?


3-4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2/ Orange Marmalade
1 TBSP soy sauce

Crock Pot option:
Place chicken in crock pot and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5.
Cook chicken alone, in it's own juices
After the time is up, drain the excess juices
Mix together the sauces and marmalade, pour over chicken.
Cook in crock pot an additional 30 minutes.
Serve warm with side of Fried Rice.

Skillet option:
Cook cubed chicken in skillet until no more pink.
In a medium sauce pan mix together other ingredients
Transfer cooked chicken into sauce mixture and let simmer about 5-10 mins or unitl heated all the way through.
Serve warm with side of Fried Rice.
Super yummy dinner, my hubby asks for this all the time and I have no problem making it since it's so easy! I love having the option of planning ahead and letting it cook all day in the crock pot, or whipping it up really quick on the stove.
Plus we have totally cut down our ordering of Chinese takeout!
Hope you all enjoy!
