Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken is the perfect homemade takeout dish made completely in the crock-pot. Best of all, it’s so easy to make and way better and healthier than takeout!
Sweet and sour pork is one of my husband’s favorite takeout dish. I used to make it for him regularly when we first got married but lately, I’ve been making Sweet and Sour Chicken instead and in the slow cooker.
It’s so much easier to whip up and you won’t have to stand in front of the hot stove which makes it perfect for those busy week nights or days when you need your hands free.
You just whisk together the homemade sweet and sour sauce and pour it over the chicken in the crockpot – then just sit back and let the machine do all the cooking for you!
After a few hours, you throw in your favorite chopped veggies – I used red bell peppers and pineapple chunks this time, then you pour in the sauce and thirty minutes later, you’re ready to serve this warm over a bowl of cooked rice or quinoa.
Your favorite take-out dish that requires almost zero effort!
**For those of you that don’t have a slow cooker, you can still make this dish on your stove top easily.
Check out my Sweet and Sour Pork Dish that doesn’t require a slow cooker. Just replace the pork with chicken or firm tofu instead.
