Crockpot General Tso’s Chicken Recipe

My family LOVES Chinese food, they would order Chinese takeout every night if I let them. That is why I developed this Crockpot General Tso’s Chicken Recipe. It tastes just like the takeout version, but made in less time and for 1/4 of the price!

A lot of my recipes are dump recipes. Why? Because they are SO easy and  I am not a HUGE fan of cooking! I can cook and cook well, but I would much rather spend my time doing something else.

We love to serve our General Tso’s Chicken Recipe over rice. You can also top with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions!

 

To toast the sesames seeds you can do it two ways. Stick in your toaster over on top of tin foil for about 3-4 minutes. You want the sesame seeds to be light brown and just start to release their natural smells. You can also cook in a frying pan on low stirring regularly until they reach a light golden brown color.

This is the crockpot that I recommend using for all of my recipes is a 6-quart crockpot like the one below. The crockpot I use in all of my recipes is an older model of the one below.
