Sweet and Sour Chicken {Slow Cooker}

Slow cooker meals are usually the most practical way for us to enjoy a nice meal together during the week since my husband and I both have full-time schedules.  So, whenever I can convert one of my favorite dishes into a slow cooked meal, I feel gratified!  I tried this yummy sweet and sour chicken recipe from Made it. Ate it. Loved it. and have been making it ever since.  It’s seriously the best and easiest homemade sweet and sour around.  Here is my slow cooker version.  Enjoy!


Chicken Breading:

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup cornstarch
Two eggs, beaten
Salt and pepper for seasoning


½ cups brown sugar
6 tablespoons ketchup
½ cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic


Chicken: Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat.  Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry.  Season with salt and pepper on both sides.  Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch chunks.  Coat chicken pieces with cornstarch, dip in eggs, then transfer to skillet.  Let cook on each side for about 3 minutes. Once chicken is light, golden brown, transfer to slow cooker.

Sauce: Combine all ingredients together and whisk until smooth.  Taste the sauce at this point and adjust it to your own liking.  If you like a more sour sauce, add more vinegar.  If you like a sweeter sauce, add more sugar.  Pour sauce over chicken and give it a good stir.

Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours.  Serve with this tasty Asian Style Quinoa!

-Serves 2 to 4
