Orange chicken is really good and making it in the slow cooker is a nice way to cook it. I did not add the walnuts because my husband is not a fan of nuts in things and he hates walnuts in particular. It is still good. Slivered almonds would be good for texture, but I did not have any.

I've tried slow cooker Asian chicken recipes using boneless breasts before, but they don't seem to have as much flavor as the thighs - you could try this using boneless thighs if you wanted it to be easier to eat. The orange marmalade is a great secret ingredient tip without having to peel orange rinds!

This slow cooked orange chicken dish sounds extremely yummy! I love the Asian inspiration and being slow cooked all day must meld those ingredients into the most deliciously flavorsome meal. And one puts all the ingredients into the slow cooker and walk away for the rest of the day? Sounds perfect to me . lol

I would really love to use this recipe, but I think I will try it with boneless, skinless chicken. It sounds like something I would make ahead and pack in my lunch for at least a once a week or every other week option. Thanks for posting something so yummy sounding!

Hi ninepatchjackie 5337201 - Some orange chicken recipes do call for soy sauce instead of teriyaki sauce so I'm guessing you could try it. If you do, please let us know how it turns out! -The editors of RecipeLion

Can I substitute Soy Sauce for the Teriyaki sauce?
