After not finding anything in terms of crock pot orange chicken on Zaar, I found this recipe at About.com, then made a couple of changes to suit my family's appetite and tastes.
This produces a very strong, tangy sauce, which may be to some people's tastes and not quite to others. Give it a whirl and see if it's for you!
Based on a recipe from The Best of Clay Pot Cooking by Dana Jacobi. Dana says, “If you can, make this dish as Moroccan women have for centuries, in the cone-topped clay cooker that gives it its name – otherwise a Dutch oven works well.”
I found this on the Six Sisters' blog and had to try it. I can never get the sauce to thicken in the crock pot so I put the juices in a separate pan, add the cornstarch and cook it on the stove but I posted as it was written.
I have 3 kids on 3 different sports teams, so during baseball season I do a lot of crockpot cooking since it seems like I'm always on the run. I was intrigued by the idea of cooking meatloaf in the crockpot but the couple of recipes I tried were very greasy and fell apart too easily. I came up with this recipe that my family really enjoys. I think the potatoes on the bottom are really key to the success of the result because they keep the meat up off the bottom and let it cook out of the liquid. I know the recipe is going to seem like too little liquid to start with, but the crockpot retains all the liquid inside and really is enough. Let me know what you think.
This meatloaf is a breeze to make, holds together and slices nicely- a problem I have had with meatloaves in the past. It is a sure winner from my mother-in-law, who is a fabulous cook. Feel free to experiment with Ro-Tel tomatoes or other ingredients.
I developed this while trying to create a crockpot friendly Chicken dish made with ingredients similar to those in some Moroccan and Syrian recipes I've seen... I needed something I could prepare in bulk for a holiday party. I only used 1 onion and diced it to make it more kid-friendly. I'm happy with the results and the feedback from the group was VERY positive. Hope you enjoy it!
Simple but tasty slow cooked pork roast recipe. The pork comes out very moist & tender with great flavor. This is a great recipe that you can cook in half the time on high, but mostly I cook it on low when I'm out of the house longer than 6-8 hours. You can also add additional seasonings to fit your tastes, sometimes I add Rosemary or Thyme or Basil or Oregano or Garlic or Onion Powder... etc... This also works well with thick cut pork chops too instead of loin roast.
This recipe comes from Jere and Emilee Gettle, who own an heirloom seed business. I prefer to use red, orange or yellow peppers instead of green. Omit the seeds from the jalapeno if you prefer. Featured in Food and Wine, 8/11
