Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken smothered in the most irresistible, multi-dimensional sauce is my Go-To slow cooker meal! You will love the ease and everyone else will swoon over the better than takeout flavor!
This Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken really is my go-to meal whenever I want stress free, hassle free, almost effort free but also want to sink my teeth into a meal that is company delicious. In fact, this was the exact scenario when I brought this dinner to a friend last week who had just welcomed her newborn baby home. I was juggling a million things the day I was bringing her dinner including cooking and photographing two different recipes for the blog so I needed something insanely easy and insanely delicious. Thank you Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken.
This better-than-takeout, swoon worthy sauce is based off my Mongolian Beef which is one of my favs because it is perfectly balanced with soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger, but gets a kick of tang from hoisin (like Chinese BBQ sauce), sweetness from mirin (sweet Japanese cooking wine) and is topped off with a splash of sweet heat from Asian Sweet Chili Sauce.
I use 4 tablespoons Asian Sweet Chili Sauce and 1 teaspoon sriracha which is perfect for the palates at our house (actually Patrick adds more sriracha – you might think I like he heat, but he LOVES it!) but when I made this dinner for my friend with 3 children under 4, I only used 2 tablespoons Asian Sweet Chili Sauce and omitted the sriracha – so basically, this Mongolian Chicken can be perfectly tailored to everyone so it can be everyone’s favorite fakeout takeout.
You are welcome to add broccoli to steam in the slow cooker after you have shredded your chicken but I like to just steam mine in the microwave for 3 minutes – because then it just takes 3 minutes – or add any cooked veggies to your chicken your heart desires – and I can promise your heart will never desire them 1000x more once bathed in this intoxicating Mongolian sauce.
Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken – stress free and unbelievably delicious for those days when you are juggling a million things or for those nights you want to kick your feet up and stuff your face with fakeout takeout Mongolian Chicken. Win-win.
