Slow Cooker Easy Sweet & Sour Chicken

  • Cooking Time:

    7 hours
  • Servings:



6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 carrots, peeled and chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 & 1/2 cup sweet & sour sauce

I love Chinese food! Sweet & Sour Chicken is an easy and healthier alternative than going out for Chinese food. This can be made with pork too.

  1. Place carrots in the bottom of the crock pot.
  2. Set chicken in a single layer directly on top of carrots
  3. Pour chicken broth in crock pot so that chicken is just covered, sprinkle with red pepper.
  4. Cover and crock on LOW for 6 hours.
  5. Remove chicken & carrots from crock pot and discard chicken broth.
  6. Return chicken & carrots to crock pot and pour in the sweet & sour sauce.
  7. Top with the drained pineapple, onions and peppers.
  8. Cover and Crock on HIGH for 45 minutes longer.

Serving suggestion: Serve over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Happy Crocking!

Your Nutritional information should show the # of servings. That would bring the calories and carbs down. I show serving of 6 and it brought the carbs down to 49.05g.

Is there any reason the chicken broth couldn’t be saved for soup?

Is this just an excuse to use a crockpot? it would be far easier and just as healthy and tasty to bake the chicken or saute it in olive oil as to cook it in the crockpot, the texture of the chicken would be more appropriate to the dish, it wouldn’t take nearly as much time, and you wouldn’t waste chicken broth…

Where does the sweet and sour sauce come from? I don’t see a recipe for it on here, did you use store bought?

This looks tasty! My only question is about the chicken prep. Do you place the whole breast in the crockpot or cut it into the pieces, as seen in the photo, before cooking? Thanks!
