Watchin' What We Eat Wednesday #2

I decided to do a slightly different take on what I think people may come up with when they think of fruit for this week's theme.  This recipe may/may not sound like the most appetizing dish, but let me tell you, it's delicious! I love it! 

Mandarin Orange Slow Cooker Chicken (4 servings at 5 pts each)

4 boneless skinless chicken halves

1 medium onion, sliced

1/4 cup orange juice concentrate

1 tsp. poultry seasoning

1/2 tsp. salt

11 ounce can of mandarin oranges, be sure to save 3 T of the juice as well.

2 T flour

Put chicken strips in slow cooker that has been sprayed with Pam cooking spray.
Combine onion, orange juice concentrate, poultry season and salt.
Pour mixture over chicken in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours.
Remove chicken and keep warm.
Reserve chicken juices.
In a saucepan, combine the 3 T of reserved mandarin juice and the 2 T of flour. 
Stir until smooth. 
Stir in the chicken juices. 
Bring to a boil.
Cook for 2 minutes.
Stir in mandarin oranges.
Pour over chicken.

That looks so good, and me with no working oven, it is perfect for me and my family! I love things I can prepare in the morning and then have it done when I get home from work!

I'll have to try it!

Loved this recipe -- I'm still it for future use. I had one (orange juice added) but it required top of the stove cooking. I love the slow cook option.
