Panda Express Copy Cat Sweet Fire Chicken

Panda Express is an easy out for me when I don't want to make dinner. I still find it easier and cheaper than any of those meal prep services.

But if you have the will power, you can make it at home and with the help of your slow cooker, it hardly takes any time at all!

Plus this way I only make one thing instead of going to the Panda Express counter trying to decide between all the choices. But since it is usually the sweet fire chicken and the sweet and sour chicken that I usually go for, I have my at home ways!



Ingredients:

3 boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 red or orange bell pepper, chopped
1 can of pineapple chunks, drained

Sauce:
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper flakes
2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon of red chili powder
4 tablespoons of cold water and 4 tablespoons of corn starch

Directions:

Place cubed chicken, chopped bell pepper, and can of drained pineapple into slow cooker.

In a medium bowl, mix garlic, red pepper flakes, sugar, water, red chili powder, honey, and salt. Reserve water and corn starch for later.

Pour sauce into slow cooker and stir. Cover and cook for 4 hours on low.

Mix cold water and corn starch in bowl and then pour and mix into slow cooker mixture. Set slow cooker on high for 30 minutes.

Serve over rice or noodles and enjoy!
