Ingredients

  • 1/2

    tablespoon salt

  • 1

    teaspoon balsamic vinegar

  • 3

    tablespoons ketchup

  • 6

    ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

  • 4

    tablespoons brown sugar

  • 4

    boneless chicken breasts, chopped into small chunks

  • 1/3

    cup flour

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

Directions

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 yet since it's going in the crock pot. When the chicken is browned, place it into the crock pot. Cover the chicken with your sauce mixture and give the pot a stir. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, or on high for 2 to 3 hours. Serve over rice and even add veggies if you want a healthier meal.
