Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken

This slow cooker sweet and sour chicken is a mish mash of a few different recipes and what I had in my pantry. The result was perfection. It was one of those times that you throw some stuff in a pot and hope for the best. The end result was much better than I was expecting. I love shredded chicken because you can do so many things with it. Eat it over some rice with a side of veggies, add some to a salad, add some slaw and a few dashes of hot sauce and it is like a pulled chicken sandwich. So many possibilities.
