V1:Chapter 8: All Day Chicken

Serves: 6
Total Calories: 255


2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 dash allspice
Remaining Ingredients
4 pounds chicken breasts and thighs
1/4 pound mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin orange segment, sections drained
1/2 green bell peppers, medium-large, sliced lengthwise
1/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup milk, cold
1/4 cup water, cold



The night before you plan on slow cooking your dinner, mix together the marinade ingredients in a large, closable container large enough to also hold the chicken pieces. When marinade is thoroughly mixed, add the chicken, close container and refrigerate until morning.

In the morning place the chicken in the crockpot and add marinade up to about an inch from the top of the container. Set the cooker on low and cover.

6 to 8 hours later, turn the cooker to high. About an hour later, saute the sliced mushrooms in the margarine or butter. Then add the mushrooms (with pan juices), mandarin sections, green pepper and ginger into the crockpot and stir thoroughly. Mix together the cornstarch, milk and cold water, then gradually add into the crockpot while stirring until the entire mixture thickens a bit.

Re-cover the crockpot and let simmer for 15 to 30 minutes until serving. Serve with baby carrots and small new potatoes.
