Slow Cooker Chicken Thai Sweet Chili Sauce

slow cooker chicken with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and Soy Sauce

This easy slow cooker chicken recipe is for just about anyone!  I wasn’t planning to cook this slow cooker chicken yesterday but found unused Thai Sweet Chili Sauce that I had purchased a while ago and thought why not create a simple chicken dish. I used boneless and skinless chicken breast and decided to add some fresh veggies in the last minute because I have enough broth/sauce to flavor more ingredients in my crockpot. So feel free to skip the veggies if you have plans to cook them separately. With or without veggies won’t affect the final result of the slow cooker recipe with sweet chili sauce and soy sauce flavors.

Another important note. Sweet chili sauce and soy sauce come in different varieties and brands. You may want to adjust the sweetness and saltiness according to your liking during the cooking process.  You may also add a bit more honey for sweeter results. For this slow cooker chicken recipe, i skipped the corn starch to have a lighter sauce consistency.  I sometimes opt for a thicker sauce though, so for a more gravy-like consistency simply mix 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch + 1 1/2 tablespoons cold water, then pour into a slow cooker.
Have a leftover slow cooker chicken? You can freeze this chicken for days!

    I love to cook and am always looking for new recipes. Chicken is also one of my favorite meats. Convenience is also important to me and that is why I use my crockpot a couple of times a week. Will definitely be using your recipe for one of our dinners this week or next. Thank you.

    What an easy recipe to make! It looks mouthwatering! I have to get a slow cooker asap! They are not so common here, so it’s hard to find the one I want.

    If it can be cooked in the slow cooker, it’s for me! Definitely a time saver and makes chicken so flavorful.
