The easiest version of Sweet & Sour Chicken you will find...A bit of chopping and then just chuck it all in!

  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: 4-6


750g-1kg chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces

1x head broccoli, cut into florets

1x red capsicum, cut into bite size pieces

1x small brown onion, quartered

1x jar Sweet & Sour sauce (eg Kan Tong)

1x jar Chinese Barbecue sauce (eg Kan Tong)


1Add all ingredients to the slow cooker & give it a stir to combine.

2Set to Low for 4 hours & use tea towel trick.

3Serve with rice.


1You can use 2x jars both of the Sweet & Sour sauce instead

2You can add the capsicum and broccoli after 2 hours instead of at the beginning if you prefer your veg not to be soft

I did this yesterday and sorry to say was disappointed, followed recipe with tea towel trick, but found the dish to be lacking in flavour and rather watery. Maybe it was because I used the Aldi’s brand.

Raw chicken, no water

Do I need to cook the chicken prior to putting it into the slow cooker and do I need to put a small amount of water into the slow cooker also?

This recipe is great! Even though it’s the “lazy” way it’s so much nicer than if I had cooked it in the frying pan. The chicken was nice and tender and the broccoli was perfect! It has fussy teenage boy approval. It’s a definite keeper.

I would do πŸ™‚

Gave this recipe a try and it is a MUST.. Absolutely divine, I left my partner in charge of cooking the rice to go with it as I was at work and he undercooked the rice (it was still rock hard) but despite our rice issue this recipe was AMAZING!! Thankyou poster 😍
