This recipe is even better than the restaurant version, my hubby loves it



4 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Green onions, sliced (optional for garnish)
Sesame seeds (optional for garnish)
Prepare the Chicken:
Combine chicken, cornstarch, salt, and pepper in a large bowl, ensuring the chicken is well-coated.

Brown the Chicken:
Using a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add chicken, cooking until browned, approximately 3-5 minutes.

Transfer to Slow Cooker:
Move the browned chicken to your slow cooker.

Prepare the Sauce:
In a separate bowl, whisk together chicken broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes.

Slow Cook:
Drizzle the sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker and stir. Cook on low heat for 4 hours or on high heat for 2 hours.

Serve and Garnish:
Plate the chicken over rice, garnishing with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
