Step by Step Method

Step 1

Add the chicken breast pieces, cornstarch, and freshly ground black pepper to a plastic bag. Shake the bag until the chicken is coated in the cornstarch.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a large pan over high heat. Add the chicken and sear it until it is well browned on all sides, about 8 minutes.

Step 3

Add the chicken and all the remaining ingredients to your crockpot and give it a stir. Set your crockpot to high for 4 hours.

NOTE: Considering crockpot temperature differs from brand to brand, you may want to check your chicken after a couple of hours, if cooked on high in the event that it is ready in a quicker time frame. You may also want to cook it low for a slower cooking time, which is what I would opt to do.

Step 4

Serve the Crockpot General Tso's Chicken with a side of rice, some steamed veggies and a little sprinkle of green onions on top.


No special items needed.

Although we enjoyed the flavor of the chicken there didn't seem to be enough sauce for our servings...I used soba noodles and mixed them in with the chicken once it was done and let them heat in the crock pot...made for "Billboard" tag game...

This is easy and tasted great, but only made enough, barely for two. I used boneless thighs that I weighed first, for 1 pound. I will double everything next time.
