Super Easy Slow Cooker General Tso’s Chicken. Way better (and healthier) than takeout! See more>>
General Tso’s Chicken1General Tso’s Chicken is my all time favorite take out dish. It’s my go to whenever I order Chinese takeout. I like my General Tso’s Chicken extra saucy so I made sure to add lots of sauce to the chicken. A lot of the sauce does dissolve as it’s cooked and gets super thick thanks to the cornstarch coated chicken.
This recipe is also a lot healthier than takeout General Tso’s Chicken. There is no deep frying in this recipe just a little oil to sauté the chicken.
To make this Slow Cooker General Tso’s Chicken start by tossing cubed chicken pieces with cornstarch in a large ziplock bag. Pan fry until golden brown on both sides and add to the slow cooker. Whip up the sauce ingredients together and toss with the chicken. Cook on low for 2-3 hours.
For an extra kick serve with some Sriracha sauce or crushed red pepper flakes.
