  • Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken

We are in the middle of our 8 Week Get Healthy Challenge and we are on a roll! One of my biggest temptations is Chinese food. I can't seem to get enough of it! I decided to try and make a lighter version of one of our family favorites at home. It was so easy to throw together and saved us a few more calories than eating take out.
