Favorite Crock-Pot for Cooking

I am literally in LOVE with my new Crock-Pot. I recently got the Crock-Pot 6 Qt. Programmable Cook & Carry Slow Cooker and it’s simply perfect for family cooking.

Crock-Pot makes cooking while home or on the go SO easy. Set it and forget it. Spend more time with family. I’ve loved slow cookers for years and this is my favorite kind.

The Cook & Carry has a locking lid that makes sure your meal won’t spill if you’re on the go. It’s vented to be sure everything still cooks in the same delicious way you’ve come to know and love from Crock-Pot. Click HERE to find the Crock-Pot Cook & Carry at Target!

What to serve with Sweet and Sour Chicken

Fluffy white rice is the go to for this dish, but you can obviously opt for brown rice, the sauce works great on either. And of course there are noodles, simple and filling.

If rice or noodles are not your thing, you can go with some stir fried veggies or quickly steamed vegetables. Honestly, the sauce will work wonders with any side!

Better than take out

Slow cooking the chicken allows it to absorb the full flavors of the sauce. It also takes away any guesswork as to whether the chicken is fully cooked.

This Crock-Pot Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe is far superior to just ordering take out.  In addition, it’s less expensive, healthier, super simple to make (just cook and cover!), it really tastes better than anything you could order on any apps!

Storing Leftovers

To Store, place cooked and cooled leftovers in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

If you want to make ahead and freeze, this a great recipe, or if you have any leftovers, store in an airtight freezer-safe storage container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.

Top Tips

  • For a faster cook, cut the chicken into bite sized pieces, if you want a longer cook, leave the chicken breasts whole.
  • Season the chicken to taste.
  • Serve with white rice, noodles or veggies.
  • Make sure to stir occasionally.
