I think that it is so funny….one of my all time most popular post is a slow cooker recipe. This angel chicken recipe is number 2 on the blogs most visited post. So….I thought I would dish out another super easy…super yummy…crowd pleasin slow cooker recipe. This is perfect for those busy school nights when everyone is running in and out….you can keep it on low…and it is ready to eat when people need to eat :)

After 4 hours…take chicken out. Cover, set aside. combine 1 T cornstarch with 1/2 T water…mix and stir into slow cooker. You can place the chicken back in after 5 minutes. (Feel free to cut it up first and dump it back in….or leave whole…doesn’t really matter). Keep on low until ready to serve. Pairs great with green beans and rice :)

  1. Cant wait to try..l have everything but the onions right now. the beginning of your recipe says 4 hours but the recipe “list” says 5. Am I missing something?

    1. 5 hours if you use more than the amount of chicken breast initially listed

  2. This looks incredible !! love the crock pot!!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This was amazing! I added a layer of fresh veggies to the bottom of the crock~broccoli, mushroom and red onion. Made exactly as written except used boneless skinless breasts (and didn’t have green onions) and cooked on high for 6 hours, stirring around the 5 hour mark to get chicken fully submerged (used 10!). Will make again but with thighs next time! The veggies were a nice addition and were done to perfection.

  4. i was dissapointed when i made this it looked so yummy thats why i attemped it but anyways i made but doubled the recipe and used boneless skinless thighs put 10 small peices in i let it cook 1230 to 630 when i got home it was burnt what did i do help me thanks did everything the way the recipe read.

  7. Have made this twice and it is so good! Going to add a layer of broccoli tonight as one reviewer said she did. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Yum! Just made this and my family is thrilled. Thanks!!

  9. I made this over the weekend becausevit lookec soooo yummy. But when I tasted the sauce it seemed like it needed a little extra zing! So I made following changes. I added a tablespoon of sesame seed oil in place of one of the canola oil. I then added 2 – 3 teaspoons of grated fresh ginger. Now…. That one delicious Chinese chicken.

    1. So glad you liked it and thanks for the yummy suggestions!
