Ok back to the 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Orange Chicken – oh my YUM!

Here is how I did it:


  • 3-4 Chicken breasts (cubed) – you will notice in my pictures is it more shredded it is because I put my chicken breasts in frozen and whole. So you certainly do not have to cut up the chicken you can shred it too! No matter the shape of the chicken you decide, its delicious either way!
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce 
  • 1 cup Orange Marmalade 
  • 1-2 tsp soy sauce (optional)


  • Cut up chicken into cubes and put in slow cooker/crock pot. Mix together ingredients and pour over chicken.   Cook low:6-8 hours or on High 2-3 hours. (cooking times may vary with your slow cooker)

I love my Beautiful slow cooker, but it is sold out everywhere so I have one here for you that is also an 8 quart size for those mamas who have a big family like me HERE not to mention, it is digital which is so helpful for a busy household of people coming and going. Set the temp, cook time and leave the rest to the slow cooker. And by the time you get home you will have a warm home cooked meal waiting for you and your family!

Invest in a slow cooker for your family meals, it will make all difference in ditching stress at dinner time!
