Easiest Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Chicken
When it comes to crock pot recipes, this Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Chicken blends two basic flavors of sweetness and sourness to tease and tempt your palette and that will convince even the fussiest eaters to try this dish. This is an easy to make crock pot chicken recipe that even older kids can serve and have for themselves on those busy days when everyone else in the family is rushing in and out to meetings, sports, music and dance lessons and all the other things we do in days that are busy and full. This croc pot chicken recipe will be delicious served with plain rice. The rice can soak up any extra sauce which tastes amazingly yummy. As a result, probably long white or jasmine rice will taste bests. Of course, brown rice is better, nutritionally, but its dominating flavor might not work quite as effectively as plain white. Still, the preference is yours, of course. A wonderful side dish could be Chinese green beans or some nice steamed broccoli with garlic and sea salt. Even just a nice salad on the side would work well with this recipe.
If you have never tried Chinese green beans, there will be no surprises, in terms of flavour because these green beans have the great flavor that all legumes have, slightly sweet with a bit of a dry following. What’s fun, though, is that Chinese green beans are super long, and they are so much fun to eat. You often cook them tied in a string, just to keep control of them which is a really great idea. Try them sometime when you make this dish, maybe make them with a spicy flavour to compliment the sweet flavour of the chicken recipe. The lovely reddish color of the sweet and sour chicken served over jasmine rice and with these long green beans on the side will be as visually attractive as it will be delicious to eat.

The crock pot is probably one of the best inventions of our modern day and it was invented to make us have to do less work in the kitchen. The inventor of the crock pot modeled his invention after a recipe that his mother used to make on the Sabbath day when no one was allowed to cook or use the oven because work wasn't permitted on the Sabbath. The recipe would cook in a chamber much like a crockpot and would be ready to eat on the day of the Sabbath without any use of an oven.
