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
1 — 20 oz. can pineap­ple chunks in juice
1 — red pep­per, seed­ed & chopped

Sesame seeds (for gar­nish)
Rice (for serv­ing)

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…


Love Sweet & Sour Chick­en & Love cook­ing in my crock­pot! Thanks for shar­ing this! I just pinned & think I’ll make this over the week­end! Thanks again!


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!

Get­ting out my crock­pot. This sounds good. I,use stock in receipe that call,for broth. Any left­over, I freeze in ice cube tray, pop,them out & throw in a freez­er zip lock.
