3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds), chopped into bite size pieces
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup corn starch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce (can be found in the Asian section at most markets)
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon minced garlic (or garlic powder)
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
steamed or fried rice for serving
Preheat oil in a nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat. Whisk together corn starch, salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and pepper.
Add corn starch mixture and chicken pieces to a large zip lock bag. Seal and shake to coat chicken.
Add coated chicken pieces to pan. Saute 2 minutes until browned.
Combine all sauce ingredients, whisk to combine. Add half to the slow cooker along with chicken pieces. Cook on low for 4 hours.
Immediately before serving, add remaining sauce to the slow cooker and stir gently.
