This week's chicken dish Orange Chicken with Sweet Potatoes comes from Jyl Steinback's The Busy Mom's Slow Cooker Cookbook. We love sweet potatoes and since we have all this chicken I have to cook up within the year, it sounded like the perfect recipe to try.

It went together easily and by cooking it in a slow cooker my kitchen didn't heat up in the process.


3       large sweet potatoes, cut into 1/4 - inch slices
2/3   cup flour
3/4   teaspoon ground cinnamon
2       teaspoons brown sugar
1/8    teaspoon pepper
1/8    teaspoon garlic powder
1        lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1        10-3/4 ounce can low-fat cream of chicken soup
1/2    cup orange juice

Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray.

Arrange potato slices in bottom of slow cooker.

Combine flour, cinnamon, brown sugar, pepper, and garlic powder in zip-top bag and shake until mixed. (I just used a pan and
dredged the chicken pieces in the mixture until the chicken was coated.)

Arrange chicken on top of potato slices. (I cut one large breast into 4 strips.)

Combine the soup and orange juice in a bowl and mix well.

Pour mixture over the chicken and potatoes.

Cover slow cooker and cook on Low heat for 8 - 10 hours or on High for 4 - 5 hours. (4 hours were plenty in my cooker.)
