Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Becca made this for her family and it turned out to be a hit. The only thing she said she would change would be to add a little less than the 6 oz. orange juice concentrate, I made that adjustment in the ingredients list. I know lots of people love orange chicken and you can't get easier than a crock pot recipe during the summer! This idea and picture comes from Six Sisters' Stuff.

• boneless chicken breasts, chopped into small chunks (I used about 4)
• 1/3 cup flour
• olive oil
• 1/2 Tbl. salt
• 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
• 3 Tbl. ketchup
• 3 - 6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate (thaw or throw it in the microwave for 45 seconds),
• 4 Tbl. brown sugar

In a bowl, mix the orange juice, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, and ketchup. Pour the flour in a small bowl. Cover the chicken breast chunks in flour and shake off the excess.
Pour a small amount of olive oil in a skillet and brown the flour-covered chicken.
The chicken doesn't need to be fully cooked since it's going in the crock pot.
After the chicken is done cooking, pour the pieces into the crock pot. Then cover the chicken with your sauce mixture and give the pot a stir.
Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-3.
Serve over rice and even add veggies if you want a healthier meal.
