Crock Pot Orange Chicken with Braised Angel Hair Cabbage (non-HCG recipe)

I am really loving the whole cook on Sunday for the majority of the week! Husband loves the meals, so it is a win-win.  Since I still have to fix my HCG meals, this saves lots of time for me.

You will need:
-1 2.5lb pound of frozen chicken tenderloins (non-breaded)
-2 onions thinly sliced
-1 bag of shredded cabbage (cole slaw cabbage, but could use bok choy if available)*
-1 bottle of Teriyaki Glaze
-1 20 ounce can of mandarin oranges in their own juice
-1 single serving bottle of simply orange brand orange juice (with or without pulp, your choice)
-1-2 tsp of Chinese 5 spice
-1-2 tsp of black pepper
-crunchy rice noodles for garnish or sesame seeds (or both)

Put the frozen chicken, onions, Teriyaki, can of mandarin oranges with juice, bottle of orange juice, and spices in crock pot for 4-6 hours. The last hour, add the cabbage.  Stir to combine.  Prior to serving prepare the chicken by cutting into bite size pieces. 
The sauce may be thin.  To thicken it add 1 tbsp corn starch to 1 tbsp cold water.  Stir to combine and then add to crock pot. Let sauce stand for a few minutes.  If not at desired consistency, repeat the process. 

Serve over brown rice and steam in bag shelled edamame.   This would also be good in butter lettuce as an orange chicken lettuce wrap.  For lettuce wrap, shred chicken instead of cutting it.
