Crock Pot Bang Bang Chicken

I made this Crock Pot Bang Bang Chicken recipe for my adult children just so they decide to come over for visits more often 😉

Feed them yummy, amazing food and they’ll want to come over more… makes perfect sense, right?!

Slow cooker meals are SOOO easy and perfect when having people over because you do all the work ahead of time.

You could even make this the night before, store in the fridge, and then put the slow cooker insert in when ready to turn the Crock Pot on.

How to make Crock Pot Bang Bang Chicken

First put two pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs into the slow cooker.

I like to cut mine into chunks because it’s a little easier to shred at the end.

Then add a diced onion, some minced garlic, kosher salt, and pepper.

Next we will make the bang bang sauce in a bowl.

Just add a can of coconut milk, sweet Thai chili sauce, soy sauce, sriracha, and lemon juice.

And set it to low for 6 to 8 hours.

About 30 minutes before serving this dish remove 1/2 cup of the liquid, mix it together with 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch, and pour it back into the Crock Pot.

Turn it to high so that the cornstarch slurry will thicken the sauce a bit.

Finally, shred the chicken with two forks right in the slow cooker.

And add some fresh, chopped cilantro.
