Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

This is a chicken dish that I make over and over and it’s so easy because you can leave it in the slow cooker all day! This is delicious served over roasted broccoli, cauliflower rice, or even white rice if that’s your thing! If you are sensitive to or avoiding soy, you can use coconut aminos. I personally find coconut aminos to be way too expensive for the dull flavor they provide, so I roll the dice and use non-GMO liquid aminos or a low sodium tamari instead of the popular paleo replacement. You can also choose to sweeten it with some honey if you’d like.
