We love Chinese food. In fact, we eat at a local Chinese buffet just about every Sunday afternoon. While they do have a few grilled items and fresh fruit, I can’t say it’s the healthiest place to eat. Most of the food is fried in who knows what, and it’s no secret that most Chinese restaurants use MSG in their food. I don’t even want to know what’s in that red sweet and sour sauce.
This recipe for orange chicken is just as good if not better than any take out. The chicken is tender and the citrus sauce is sweet and tangy. It’s made from natural ingredients and of course it’s gluten-free and allergy-friendly.
It takes a little while to brown the chicken before tossing it in the slow cooker, but the results are worth it. If you skip this step, please let me know how it turns out.
