Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken

Sharing is caring!

This slow cooker mongolian chicken recipe is a simple and easy throw together dinner. I like to serve mine with rice and a side of roasted broccoli.

I love easy crock pot dinners like this Mongolian Chicken recipe. Be sure to try out my Pioneer Woman Slow Cooker Pork Chops and this delicious Chocolate Crockpot Cake as well.

This was my first time making this for my family and I do believe it was a hit!

This recipe is a somewhat a healthy chicken dish. I make sure to serve it with steamed vegetables and rice on the side.

I love that from start to finish, this recipe only takes 4 hours. No need to do anything but dump it and go. Those are my favorite crockpot meals.

What is Mongolian Chicken?

Mongolian Chicken is really a take on my Mongolian Ground Beef Noodles, Normally, whatever meat you are using, it will be typically stir fried then tossed with a sauce made from brown sugar, garlic and ginger then served over or with rice.

Of course, we added hoisin sauce to really punch up the flavors.

Watch Your Chicken

I will caution you to really watch your chicken. It is not my favorite protein to make in the slow cooker because it can go from tender and juicy to rubbery and mushy in a heart beat.

What to Serve with Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken

The sauce is perfect and thick and goes great over a huge bowl of rice. Then, top it with the chicken and then spoon more sauce over the top.

Sprinkle on some green onions and sesame seeds for both color and flavor.
