  1. Sounds so simple and delicious! Will have to try it!

  2. Mary Beth Elderton says:

    OMGoodness! I have been looking for a good Orange Chicken recipe that was easy to make–and this is slow cooker, too! Thank you!

  3. Itzel says:

    Cook it with what? Just boil?

  4. Martha McDaniels says:

    Won’t the chicken burn in the crockpot if there is no liquid in it during the begining of the cooking process?

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Martha ~ the chicken won’t burn… it will end up cooking in the juices from the chicken. Hope that helps! ;)

  5. Ah-HA!! Thanks for this recipe! I tried making orange chicken slowly cooked in a dutch oven with real oranges and orange zest. The flavor was not so pleasing to my kids. Maybe not sweet enough? But this sounds reeaaally good!

  6. Josi Cammarata says:

    Will this recipe work with chicken wings?

  7. Kim says:

    Once you have this all put together, can you freeze it well? I need to make some meals to put away for family while I recover from surgery. I am looking to get as much prepped for them as possible so they just have to heat’n eat.

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Kim ~ I haven’t tried freezing this before, but I know several of the other completed crockpot chicken meals freeze really well. I don’t see why this would be any different… I say go for it! ;)

  8. Michelle G says:

    The ingredients say Orange Marmalade, but the picture shows Sweet Orange Marmalade, which one is it?

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Michelle ~ some brands call it Orange Marmalade, but the Smuckers brand is called Sweet Orange Marmalade. If you can’t find the Smuckers brand, just try substituting another brand of orange marmalade. Hope that helps! ;)

  9. Amanda (Mia) says:

    I hope you know that this recipe is going to make me really happy. I LOVE easy crockpot recipes, and I stumbled on your blog through Pinterest (the Walmart coupon post). I’ll probably throw in some random veggies from my fridge, and some garlic, and maybe sesame seeds…and any other random asian sauces I have.

    What I love about this recipe is that it sets a super easy foundation for orange chicken, and I know where to find the ingredients at my grocery store.

    I’m really hungry now, and it’s well past midnight. Crap.

    Thanks for the post!

  10. This looks so delicious! I can’t wait to try it!

  11. Jen says:

    Wounder if u could use like popcorn chicken or a small breaded chicken

    • Christina says:

      That actually sounds amazing. Maybe make or buy premade breaded chicken and toss it in a bowl of this mixture and throw it in the oven for a few minutes!

  12. rachael says:

    thinking about making this with all the ingrediants on low for 8hrs. then serving over rice! thoughts??

  13. Tiffany says:

    Very tasty, thanks for the quick and easy recipe! The chicken was so moist that it fell apart so most of it was chunky or shredded and it went great over some Jasmine rice with steamed veggies!

  14. Karen Weber says:

    Hi Heidi,
    Have you ever tried this cutting the chicken into chunks? Do you think that would work just as well, except adjust the timing?
    Thanks for posting this yummy recipe. Will be making it this week!

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Karen ~ yes… I have cut this into chunks as well, and it works great! What I do is cook the chicken as chicken breasts for the first 3 hours. Then I remove the chicken, drain the juices, and cut the chicken into chunks. I place the chicken back in the crockpot, add the sauce, and cook for an additional 30 minutes. It turns out just as delicious this way, too! ;)

      ~ Heidi

  15. Sandy says:

    This was WONDERFUL! Thank you for great, way recipe.

  16. Claire says:

    I made this tonight and I was skeptical at first about not putting any liquid in with the chicken. But, It came out great! I sprayed the bottom very well and loaded it up with about 3 lbs of breasts. I couldn’t stand how sad they looked bare, so I sprinkled some red onion and salt and pepper over them which helped flavor the meat as they cooked. I had to be away from it for about 5 hours so I set it on low. The chicken was so tender and moist that I ended up serving it shredded over rice. I also made extra sauce to serve on the side. Thanks for an easy, delicious recipe!

  17. Katie says:

    Could you use bone in chicken breast?

  18. Kandace says:

    AMAZING. I added some sweet chili sauce that I had sitting in the fridge. . . kicked it up a notch!

    Any idea as to nutritional info on this one, or how it could be calculated? Doesn’t make sense to me to add up the calories from ALL of the marinade since you don’t eat even close to all of it.

    • Donna says:

      I was wondering the same thing. Usually I just add up all the ingredients and divide by how many servings but since majority of the sauce will still be in the bottom of the pot.

  19. Charlotte says:

    I just made this tonight and it was delish, thank you for the recipe!! I have an over-zealous crockpot so after 3 hours the chicken was dry (but still tasted amazing) so next time I will do 2.5 hours and cut Into chunks before serving. What a great recipe, so easy! Thanks again!

  20. Cindy says:

    Looks yummy! I have apricot preserves leftover from another recipe,so I’m going to try substituting that this time.(but I do have Sweet Baby favorite!)Hope it turns out :-)
