I've got a fantastic slow cooker meal for you today! This Zesty Crockpot Orange Chicken has tons of flavor and is so ridiculously easy to put together.

Basically, the recipe goes like this:

  1. Chop up some chicken.
  2. Dump a bunch of stuff in the slow cooker.
  3. After that's done, mix together some water and some cornstarch for a thickener.

Eat! You will love it, and there's plenty of yummy orange sauce to soak into the rice 🙂
