Orange Chicken with Sweet potatoes

Orange Chicken with Sweet potatoes.
This is another great recipe for chicken. Sooo moist and tender and tasty!
And it's quick and easy! 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced.
2/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided.
1 teaspoon salt.
1 teaspoon onion powder.
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
1 teaspoon pepper.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts.
2 tablespoons butter.
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup.
3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice.
2 teaspoons brown sugar.
1 teaspoon grated orange peel.
1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms.

Layer sweet potatoes in a 3 qt slow cooker.
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 2/3 cup flour and seasonings: add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake to coat.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in butter 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
Arrange chicken over sweet potatoes.
Place remaining flour in a small bowl and stir in soup, pineapple juice, brown sugar, and orange peel until blended. Add mushrooms and pour over chicken.
Cover and cook 3 1/2 -4 hours on low.
The recipe says to serve with rice, but we felt that was too much carbs, so we served it with chopped steamed broccoli.
