Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Orange chicken is probably my favorite food.  When we go out, if it's on the menu, I order it.   I can't resist.  I've made it a few times and while I have never acheived restaurant quality, this is pretty darned good. 

It wasn't until after I'd made it that I realized that I've already made this.  Or at least something super similar.  I love anything in the crock pot and was excited to find this.  Again.  I actually made a double batch and shredded the leftover chicken to use for salads for the week.

Adapted from Mom's Crazy Cooking

2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts, chopped into chunks
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. ketchup
6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup brown sugar

In a bowl, mix the OJ, brown sugar, vinegar, salt and ketchup.  Dump the chicken in the crockpot and add the sauce. Cook for 4 - 6 hours on low until done. 

**Alternate method:  Bread chicken chunks in flour and brown in a skillet before dumping them in the crockpot.  I skipped this part because I'm lazy!
