Crock Pot General Tso’s Chicken (The lighter version)

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!


For years, I would only cook in my Crock Pot in the fall/winter months. Well, this summer my crock pot has been getting great use.

I’ve been thinking of making this dish for quite a while.

So today I just went for it. I decided to use the Crock Pot because my time is limited. This way I can accomplish everything I need to and still have a healthy meal prepared when I get home.

Here’s what you will need:

8 organic boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/4 C Amino Acid (or low sodium soy sauce)

1/4 C Rice Vinegar

1/4 C Organic Hoisin Sauce (this is the must have for this recipe it does not have to be organic)

1 C Organic diced peppers ( I use an organic diced frozen blend of  red, yellow & green)

2 Tbsp Raw Honey

1 Tbsp Organic Cornstarch

1 Tbsp Water


Mix the following in a small bowl

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1 tsp of paprika, garlic powder and onion powder



1. Cut your chicken into medium size chunks and place in a large bowl.

2. Add your seasonings and cornstarch to the chicken. ( mix to get the chicken evenly coated and set aside)

3. For the sauce in a medium bowl add your Amino Acid, Vinegar, Hoisin Sauce, Honey & Water (stir to combine)

4. Pour sauce into the crock pot, add your chicken and pepper (stir to get everything evenly mixed)

5. Set your crock pot on High for 4 hours

Serve over rice and with veggies of your choosing.


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, it’s greatly appreciated.

Enjoy & Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺
