Orange Chicken

I make the recipe all the time in the oven. I thought why not try it in the crock??? It was amazing. A family favorite. So easy and it looks like it was a lot more work when it is done. I serve this when I have friends over or just for my family. It can be eaten over rice or egg noodles and served warm or it even tastes great cold as leftovers.

Captain, Princess and Little Man always ask for orange chicken and eat every bite!

This is ALL you need:
Boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used three) cut up into aprox. 4 pieces per breast.
1/2 jar of jam. I use orange marmalade but have used apricot preserves before too.
1 package of onion soup mix
1/2 bottle of Russian salad dressing

place a little dressing on the bottom of the crock. Add chicken pieces. Put a spoon full of jam on each piece of chicken. Sprinkle onion soup mix on top. Pour the remaining dressing over the top. Cook on low aprox. 3 hours. Pull chicken into little pieces if desired. Serve gravy and chicken mix over egg noodles. YUMMY IN THE TUMMY!
