I was skeptical as to whether or not you could make sweet and sour chicken in the crock pot, but it totally works. Now, this slow cooker sweet and sour chicken does not include that crispy breaded coating. However, it really is healthier for you to not have that crispy coating. Don’t be scared off by the long list of ingredients. The bulk of the ingredients make the sauce and are regular pantry items.
You add the fresh veggies at the end to keep them nice and crisp. I like mine crisp but tender and cooking it 45 minutes was perfect. If you like your veggies with more crunch, just cook it less. It will be an nice addition to this slow cooker sweet and sour chicken.
