Orange Chicken... that wasn't actually orange :)

I am always hunting for crockpot recipes- I love how easy and delicious they are. I came across this one and I thought I would give it a try... HOWEVER I didn't have orange marmalade, so I had to use the blackberry jam I had on hand.... giving it a lack of "orange," but still a good flavor. If I were to try it out again though, I think I would use this recipe. It looks a bit more promising. This was still tasty though.

Orange Chicken in the Crockpot
  • 3 pounds chicken parts (leg quarters, bone-in breast halves, etc.), skin removed
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Rinse chicken and pat dry; place in crockpot. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl or 2-cup measure and pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. (Mine was done in about 5-6.) Serve with hot cooked rice or noodles.
