Crockpot Mandarin Orange Chicken

We have very little lighting in our under-construction Kitchen, which doesn't result in very delicious looking photographs..
Adapted From: Lauren's Kitchen

Serves: 4


  • 4 chicken tenderloins
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 15 ounce can of mandarin oranges, juice reserved
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Shredded coconut


  1. Spray Crockpot with non-stick spray and sprinkle with a little salt. Place chicken in Crockpot.
  2. Place mandarin oranges on top of chicken.
  3. In a small bowl, combine mandarin orange juice, sugar, lemon juice, ginger and cornstarch. Stir until combined. Pour over chicken.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours on low, then a half hour on high. (Cook time could vary depending on thickness of chicken. Mine wasn't extremely thick.)
  5. Sprinkle coconut over chicken, and stir so that the chicken gets totally coated with the sauce, oranges and coconut. Serve over rice.
