After not finding anything in terms of crock pot orange chicken on Zaar, I found this recipe at, 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!

Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe! I've been looking for a sweet & sour or orange chicken crock pot recipe for quite awhile and was delighted to find this one. I did have to make a couple of changes, due to my own lack of planning. First, I forgot to thaw the chicken breasts, so I was not able to cut up the meat into pieces. I shook the frozen breasts with the flour, and it worked all right. Next, I didn't have any yellow mustard, so I used dijon (which worked fine). Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. My husband and I both loved the flavor, which is very orangey. I served this with brown rice and whole green beans. Wonderful! Thanks again for sharing!

Now this dish is right up my alley. This chicken is outstanding! I absolutely love the flavors in this. I did use the rice vinegar and the grated fresh ginger but omitted the scallions. I did add a sprinkle of crushed red pepper on my serving. It's a HIT! Made for Spring PAC 09.

Cloyingly sweet with no spice. No one liked it and broke out the leftover pizza and ate that instead.
