Sweet and Sour Chicken

Or as my kids call it… Red Chicken. I don’t know what it is with my kids, but if I call a meal by it’s “real” name they won’t eat it. I’ve learned I must keep things as simple as possible for them. Along with fun! That’s why whenever possible, I use my crinkle cutter. Since carrots (or whatever i’m cutting at the time) taste SO much better when they are crinkled!

3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast

2 cans sweet and sour sauce

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

3-5 carrots, peeled and diced (crinkled in my case)

~Rinse chicken breasts and remove any extra fatty pieces, pat dry. Pour in both cans of sweet and sour sauce, place chicken on top of sauce. Toss in your diced bell peppers and carrots. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over rice.

Side note: If your a fan of pineapple, toss in a can of pineapple chunks (drained).

  1. yum. i love sweet & sour chicken, but have never made it! And, any recipe that uses the crock pot is an automatic favorite!

  2. I ventured over to your blog and found it hilarious! :)
    So true, if you give kids a fancy name for food they wont eat it!

  3. I need to try this one...I tried a different recipe and the chicken came out really dry. Then again, look who was cooking :)

  4. If the chicken is drying out, try cooking it less. It could be your crockpot cooks higher on the low setting. Or you used thin chicken breasts. You want thick breasts, LOL. :)
