I need to start planning meals better. I usually just decide after lunch what I feel like making for dinner. That is not a helpful strategy for grocery shopping and even worse for cooking. I have a list of things you should always have in your pantry. Like hundreds of items. I probably have 10 of them.
Time to turn over a new leaf and make real meals and have "fun" doing it.
Crockpot Orange Chicken
Serves 3 to 4
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken, cut into 2-inch chunks
- 1/2 cup flour (such as Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix)
- Olive oil, for browning the chicken
- 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
- 6 ounces (1/2 can) frozen orange-juice concentrate, thawed (preferably little to no pulp, since the pulp can taste a bit bitter when cooked)
- 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. ketchup
