I’m exaggerating a tad, but it is very easy. I skipped the part about browning the chicken in a pan before adding it to your crock pot. Other than that I was 100% telling the truth.
This Crock Pot General Tso’s Chicken is sticky and sweet with just the right amount of heat. After spending 4 hours in the crock pot, the chicken becomes quite tender and the sauce thickens and coats each piece in a delicious, edible blanket.
It’s every bit as good as take out, with a fraction of the fat, sugar, and salt. Sorry Chinese takeout, but I don’t think I’ll be ordering you again. ?
I’m pretty stoked about this whole crock pot thing. I (finally) got my first one a few weeks ago and have been using it all. the. time.
For some reason, I had it in my mind that crock pots were this thing that were only used by frazzled moms who live in suburban house farms and drive around in minivans full of car seats. Since I live in the city, don’t have kids and ride my bike to get around town, I thought crock pots weren’t for me. I was clearly suffering from I Think I’m Too Cool for Crock Pot Cooking. Shame. Shame on me.
Thank god I got over that one.
Hopefully, you’re a lot smarter than me and have already figured out that crock pot cooking rocks. If you’re now officially the only person left on the planet who doesn’t own a crock pot, can you please do and buy one asap? Trust me, you want to.
