2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
dash allspice
4 pound chicken, breasts and thighs
1/4 pound mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
11 ounce (1 can) Mandarin orange segments, drained
1/2 bell pepper, sliced lenghtwise
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water




The night before you plan on slow cooking your dinner, mix together
the marinade ingredients in a large, closable container large enough
to also hold the chicken pieces. When marinade is thoroughly mixed,
add the chicken, close container and refrigerate until morning.

In the morning place the chicken in the slow cooker and add marinade
up to about an inch from the top of the container. Set the cooker
on low and cover.

6 to 8 hours later, turn the cooker to high. About an hour later,
saute the sliced mushrooms in the margarine or butter. Then add
the mushrooms (with pan juices), mandarin sections, green pepper
and ginger into the slow cooker and stir thoroughly. Mix together
the cornstarch, milk and cold water, then gradually add into the
slow cooker while stirring until the entire mixture thickens a bit.

Re-cover the slow cooker and let simmer for 15 to 30 minutes until
serving. Serve with baby carrots and small new potatoes.
