Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken
Easy slow cooker recipes are my jam. When I know I have a busy day ahead, throwing dinner into the crockpot and walking away to accomplish my activities is fantastic. I know dinner will be ready when I need to feed everyone – and this Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken is definitely on that list of ideas.
With only five ingredients to put in the slow cooker, it really doesn’t get much easier. Keep the chicken thighs in your freezer and the rest of the ingredients in your cabinet (you likely already have them there anyway!) and you can pull out this easy dinner any day of the week. If you have a rice cooker, set that to cook as well and you’re good to go!
If you need a gluten-free dinner, you can easily replace the soy sauce in this recipe with tamari.

Mongolian Chicken Recipe
4 – 5 large boneless chicken thighs
1/4 cup soy sauce (replace with tamari sauce for gluten-free)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Thinly sliced green onions (optional garnish)
White sesame seeds (optional garnish)
Pull out a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Lay your chicken thighs on the bottom.
Do your best to lay them next to each other instead of on top of each other.
In a small bowl, combine your soy sauce, brown sugar, ground ginger, and garlic powder. Using a small whisk, stir until incorporated.
Pour the mixture over your chicken, doing your best to make sure that each piece gets poured over. Cover your slow cooker and cook on high for 3 1/2 hours or low for 7 hours.
Serve on rice with a garnish of sesame seeds and/or green onions. I love the sesame seeds for the extra texture, so if you’re wavering, just go for it!
