(Crockpot) Easy, Skinny Orange Chicken

November 4, 2014

Orange chicken is one of my absolute favorite Chinese dishes to eat. One day, the idea to make it in a healthier way hit me like a ton of bricks when I was in the grocery store and saw sugar free orange marmalade. I make this recipe via crockpot. It is simple, and I really like the taste. 

  • 1 pound of fresh chicken breast
  • 1 cup of Walden Farm's (calorie free) BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup sugar free orange marmalade 
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch 
  • Couple dashes of ginger seasoning
What you do:
  • Cut chicken into small pieces
  • Place in crockpot and add all other ingredients
  • Stir to thoroughly combine
  • Place ingredients in a tupperware container
  • Stir to throughly combine
  • Let marinate over night
  • When ready to cook, place all ingredients in crockpot on high for 3-5 hours depending up on size and quantity.
  • Serve over a bed of brown rice or lo mein!
Super easy and super delicious. It's something different, too!

  1. I've done the same thing with apple butter, and soy sauce instead of the orange and Worcestershire. Sometimes it's just fun to toss things into the crock pot and see how they come out right? I might have to try it this way next time!
    Also I bet this would be awesome on wings for Superbowl or something. hmmm

  2. Sounds amazing! Glad you find the combo that works. Can't wait to try it.

  3. I will have to try this! I love orange chicken and always great if you can healthier ingredients to cut the calories or fat content.

  4. This looks delicious!!!! And where oh where did you find calorie free bbq sauce??? I have never heard of such a thing and must be informed immediately!

  5. Looks tasty! Yeah - Calorie Free BBQ sauce? Where you buy that GIRL?

  6. This doesn't sound too orangy so I might give it a whirl! Especially since there is no breading.
