Crock Pot Sweet and Tangy Chicken #Recipe

I am excited to share this recipe with all of you.  I wanted a new Crock Pot recipe using chicken and I created something that was approved by the entire family!  I created my version of the amazing orange chicken that you can get at many Chinese take out joints.  While the sugar intake of this recipe is pretty high, it is so worth it.
