A few months ago I had thought about making slow cooker orange chicken. I decided against it after reading many mixed reviews about the chicken being too sweet. I didn't want to make anything over powering so I decided against making it. Fast forward to this week. I was going to make one of our favorites, sesame chicken and since I've been in a bit of a dinner rut lately I wanted to mix it up a little and that is when I decided on Sesame Orange Chicken. The sesame oil and soy sauce really went well with the orange juice and it made the perfect flavor combination. The end result was fabulous!
