If you are looking for a 6 quart slow cooker, I love Hamilton Beach - they are inexpensive and work wonderful. The one in the photo above is no longer in stock (Hamilton Beach 6-Quart Oval Stay Or Go Slow Cooker, Stainless Steel Model 33162R), have used it more times than I count. Here is another 6 quart slow cooker by Hamilton Beach that has great reviews and a great price!

Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Chicken - 4 Ingredients

Print recipe  
Ingredients
  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds chicken breast, boneless, skinless - cut into 1 inch bite size pieces
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2  cup crushed pineapple (liquid drained)
Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.  Place chicken in a single layer in bottom of crock pot. Mix the remaining ingredients (apricot preserves, chili sauce and pineapple), pour over chicken.  Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours, or on low for 6 to 8 hours. Each crock-pot cooks differently, so cooking times may vary. Serve over rice and with your favorite vegetable, like steamed broccoli. Enjoy! 

Tip: For more kick, you can add a little crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce.  

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheers!

For those who have made it, did you use the red pepper flakes? What about salt or pepper?

I like onion and green pepper chunks in my sweet and sour chicken...can I just add them to the crockpot or do they get mushy?

Just add the onions and green peppers halfway through to keep them a little crisp.

I didn't have time after work to crockpot so I did it on the stove and it's simmering away almost ready! I put it on for 2hours. This is going to be delish. I added a chopped red pepper and chili flakes to mine 🙃

How many servings is this recipe?

Ruby Banks said...

I made it yesterday and my family said it taste like soup with chicken in it. I did what the recipe said so I don't know what I did wrong. Any suggestions?

Ruby, did you use frozen chicken breasts? Some frozen chicken breasts are injected with a lot water/broth/etc... If you did, that may be the reason.
