This delicious Slow Cooker Orange Chicken Freezer Meal recipe is so good and soon to be a family favorite! If you like Chinese take out orange chicken then you definitely need to give this recipe a try. I prepared this meal in an afternoon when making 15 crockpot freezer meals for my family’s dinners. With back to school routines being adjusted and after school activities in full swing, I wanted to make a bunch of prep ahead meals that I could make for my family dinners.
So I got busy creating easy slow cooker recipes that I could just dump all the ingredients in the bag and put it straight in the freezer. None of the meals I made have to be cooked first, which saved a lot of time for me. This chicken crockpot recipe has been my hubby’s favorite out of the slow cooker meals and will be added to our regular menu meals. I served the delicious Slow Cooker Orange Chicken Freezer Meal with stir fry peppers and over Cilantro Rice. I used my 6 QT Green Bay Packers crockpot because I am a cheese head, loud and proud.
