Have to try this slow cook chicken soon. Also notice it is *diabetic friendly* which suits me. Thank you.

I made the Orange Chicken in the slow cooker when I got home from church today. I loved it. I did not add any mushrooms that it called for. I also did not add any Bell Green Pepper either. But, I loved it anyway. Yes, I will make it again.
