I posted this recipe over a year ago, and it’s still a hit in our house! Now is the time to be making this meal, since oranges are in season and low in price! What’s nice about this meal is it’s healthy, not your traditional fried, breaded orange chicken. Serve over brown rice with a veggie!
4 Chicken Leg Quarters (take skin off) –or any kind of cut chicken will do
3 Navel Oranges
1/2 Sliced Onion
1 Tbsp. Fresh Ginger, grated
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Sugar (I know it seems like a lot, but trust me!)
3 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Place chicken in freezer bag. Slice one orange and put in bag with sliced onion. Zest 2 whole oranges and put in a small bowl, add juice from both oranges and place in the bowl. Add all other ingredients to the bowl and whisk until combined, then add mixture to freezer bag, freeze. On the day of cooking, allow bag to sit at room temperature for 30-45 minutes, then put everything into a slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on low.
