1 cup tomato juice
1/2 cup pickled cherry peppers, chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 to 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 pound shredded cooked chicken
1-1/2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped fresh broccoli
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
1In a -4 or -5 quart slow cooker, combine the first six ingredients. Stir in chicken, onion and broccoli. Cook, covered, on low until vegetables are tender, about 2 hours. Top with green onions and sesame seeds to serve.
I love Asian food and wanted a chili-like soup with the distinctive flavors of General Tso’s chicken. The slow cooker makes this super easy, and you can use any meat you like. It’s a great with turkey, ground meats or leftover pork.
