Craving Asian flavors? Try our bold Low Carb Slow Cooker Orange Chicken this week!
It’s easy to derail your diet by seemingly healthy foods.
Asian cuisine is always the culprit for me. Yes, there are plenty of Asian dishes that are easy on the waistline. However, if I’ve been limiting my carbs and sugar, it’s the fatty classics like szechuan beef, sesame chicken, and fried rice that start calling my name.
Today I’m sharing a cleaned-up version of a traditional Chinese restaurant favorite so you can satisfy your Asian takeout cravings while sticking to your diet… And I made it in the crockpot!
The slow cooker makes it possible to start dinner and move on to other activities. Then when it’s time to eat, you’ll sit down to a cozy aromatic meal that is not only low carb, but can be made gluten free and paleo.
Low Carb Slow Cooker Orange Chicken is my new favorite thing. It tastes decadent and naughty, yet is guilt-free!
I started with boneless skinless chicken thighs. Then whisked together a quick sauce made with orange juice and zest, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce.
All you have to do is place the chicken in a slow cooker, pour the sauce over the top, and press start. As the chicken cooks, it thickens the sauce into an easy savory-sweet gravy with tons of wow factor.
You can serve Low Carb Slow Cooker Orange Chicken with rice, quinoa, or even cauliflower rice for a complete low carb meal!
