Slow Cooker Sweet 'n Sour Chicken Over Rice Recipe

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Biggest Brother was spending his weekly wages at one of the local Chinese restaurants; so I decided it might be time for me to find a few chinese cruisine recipes before he went bankrupt at the age of 17.

Image my excitement when I found this slow cooker version of a favorite chinese dish. And I was even more surpised and delighted when it was a very good tasting recipe.


  • 1 lb baby carrots

  • 1 medium onion, cut into wedges

  • 6 boneless, skinlless chicken breast halves

  • 20 oz can unsweetened pineapple chunks

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 3 cups cooked long grain enriched rice


  1. Layer carrots and onion in slow cooker. Top with chicken.

  2. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Place pineapple chunks over chicken.

  3. Mix together pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, chicken bouillon, salt, ginger, and garlic. Pour over top.

  4. Cook on low 6 - 7 hours.

  5. Combine cornstarch and water. Gradually stir into slow cooker.

  6. Cook 30 minutes longer or until sauce is thickened.

  7. Served over rice.
