Ingredients


2 cups lower sodium chicken broth

2 Tbsp. frozen orange juice concentrate

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
(We used Hunt's No Salt Added Paste.)

2 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp. Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp. ground allspice

1/8 tsp. ground ginger

1 tsp. no sodium salt
(We Used No Salt Sodium Free Salt.)

4 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast

8 oz. sliced mushrooms

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1 can (11 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained

1/4 cup cold water

1/4 cup fat free milk

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

3 Tbsp. cornstarch


1. Stir the first 10 ingredients (chicken broth through no sodium salt) together in a 4-5 quart crock pot. Then cut up the chicken into 3x3 inch square chunks. Mix the chicken and mushrooms into the pot. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours.

2. About 1 hour before it's done, stir in the green pepper strips and mandarin orange slices.

3. Once it's finished, stir together the last 4 ingredients, water through cornstarch and gradually mix it into the crock pot. When it's thoroughly combined, cover and cook for 15 more minutes until it begins to thicken. Serve and enjoy.
