  • 2.5 pounds chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • sliced green onion for garnish, optional


  • Place cornstarch, black pepper and chicken chunks into a plastic bag. Shake until chicken is evenly coated with cornstarch.
  • In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil of medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until chicken is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Chicken will not be cooked thru. Remove chicken from the skillet to the slow cooker.
  • In a small bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, garlic, ginger, pinch of red pepper flakes and sriracha. Stir until well blended. Pour over the chicken.
  • Stir the chicken until coated with the sauce. Turn the slow cooker to high and cover.
  • Cook for 3-4 hours until the chicken is cooked thru and the sauce is thick. Serve over rice.


Start checking the slow cooker at 2 hours. Depending on the size and power of your slow cooker, this dish may be done in less time.
