Sweet & Sour Chicken {Slow Cooker}


I love my slow cooker.

Like, love... a lot.

It completely simplifies my life. (Especially since my cooking skills aren't quite to par with my baking abilities. Shh).

In this recipe the tender, juicy, shredded chicken soaks up all the flavors the sweet and tangy sauce provides. This tasted wonderful served over rice with a side of veggies.

This will definitely be made again. I mean, a meal that requires five minutes of prep and tasted marvelous, how could I not?

Enjoy!


Sweet & Sour Chicken {Slow Cooker}
Adapted from: My Kitchen Cafe

Ingredients

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 onion, diced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup low-sodium beef broth

Direction

In a large skillet, heat the butter/olive oil. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and cook them for 1-2 minutes on each side, until nicely browned but not cooked all the way through. Remove the chicken to the slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine all the other ingredients. Whisk well. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours. Serve with rice or noodles.

  31. My family and I love sweet and sour chicken. my question is, would it make much of a difference if I use white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar?
