General Tsao’s Chicken-Crock Pot

General Tsao's Chicken
I simply love any dish that I can make at home in the crock pot! This was super delicious and puts take out to shame. I made up the sauce the night before and then threw everything in the crock pot before heading off to work. When I got home, all I had to do was make the rice and cut up the chicken…


General Tsao's Chicken-Crock Pot


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 red pepper-chopped
1 yellow pepper-chopped
1/2 onion-chopped
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons ketchup
1/4 teaspoon dry ginger
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper (use to your liking)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Sesame seeds
1 package Yellow rice


In a small mixing bowl, mix together the water, hoisin, soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, ginger and crushed red pepper; set aside.

Use a liner in your crock pot or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Add chicken and vegetables and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours. Remove chicken and cut into chunks.

Whisk the cornstarch into the sauce to thicken it up. Add chicken back into the crock, cover and cook fora an additional 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the rice according to the package directions.

Serve the chicken over the rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    Both my husband and I are crazy fanatics of the general’s chicken. With these high praises, I’ll have to make this . . . and dust off that crock pot that I’ve only used once this past year!

    Can you believe I’ve never tasted General Tsao’s chicken? I really must make it…and tame down the spice so the hubby enjoys. Thanks for the wonderful recipe…and thanks for popping by my blog (which nudged me into visiting you)! I’ve missed stopping by.
