Crock Pot General Tso’s Chicken Recipe

  • 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds), chopped into bite size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce (can be found in the Asian section at most markets)
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or garlic powder)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • steamed or fried rice for serving

Preheat oil in a nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat. Whisk together corn starch, salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and pepper.
Add corn starch mixture and chicken pieces to a large zip lock bag. Seal and shake to coat chicken.
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)
In a bowl combine all sauce ingredients and whisk to combine. Add half to the crockpot along with chicken pieces. Cook on low for 4 hours.
Immediately before serving, Add remaining sauce to the crockpot and stir gently. Serve with rice.
