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.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



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.
