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.

Others said they like this. We thought it was awful. Maybe we did something wrong, but it tasted like hot dogs with mustard and ketchup sauce. We couldn't even taste the orange. I purchased a high end jar of orange marmalade, two packages of chicken, just for this recipe. After one meal, we threw out more than half. I don't usually waste food, but that's how bad this was. Again, maybe we did something wrong, but it was not good to us.

Unfortunately, did not like this one. If I were to make again, I would cook more on the side of 6 rather than 8 hours next time. Although i can slightly taste a hint of orange, the mustard flavor quickly over powers it.

This is a definite "keeper" in my recipes to do again another time. I actually cut this in half, and my husband requested next time we make the entire recipe and freeze some! I used regular yellow mustard but didn't taste that at all! The chicken and sauce have a lovely orange flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

We did not like this. It was too starchy because of the flour and the flavor of the mustard was too strong.

I made this today and I'm just waiting to try it. Used the whole jar of Marmalade and added a can of crushed pineapple.
