Slow cooker General Tsos Chicken Recipe!

This is seriously a fast prep ( 15 minutes ) GREAT meal for dinner, you can add or reduce the spice to your liking!



  • 5 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 3 pounds), cut into 'bite'size pieces
  • 4 tablespoons oil ( I used peanut oil! ) 
  • 1 cup corn starch
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2  teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 11 tablespoons hoisin sauce( i used a full 8.5 oz jar. )
  • 8 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 8 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic (or garlic powder)
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes ( I used about 1/4 of a cup, but my family loves spice ) 
  • Brown Rice For serving
  1. Preheat oil in a nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat. Whisk together corn starch, salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and pepper.
  2. Add corn starch mixture and chicken pieces to a large zip lock bag. Seal and shake to coat chicken.
  3. Add coated chicken pieces to pan. Saute 1-2 minutes until browned. (It chicken will still be raw in the middle at this point, that's okay)
  4. combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl  and blend . Add half to the crockpot along with chicken pieces. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  5. Immediately before serving, Add remaining sauce to the crockpot and stir gently. Serve with rice.
