This weekend, I was flipping through my recipe pile and came across this recipe. I was looking for something new to use boneless, skinless chicken breast (a staple in our house) for. I really liked the combination of the garlic, fresh ginger (which I LOVE) and soy sauce. Plus, it utilized the slow cooker — even better! I must be on a crock pot kick this week…this is the second recipe I’ve made using this trusted appliance! It’s just easy and convenient. So, why not?!?!
Is it a keeper?
YES! This recipe is very easy and very good! I mixed the ingredients to the sauce together earlier in the week and stored them in the fridge. Then when I was ready to make the dish, I just added it to the slow cooker. I love dished that I can pre-assemble a few days in advance!
I served the chicken and the sweet Asian inspired sauce over brown rice with a side of broccoli. I will definitely be making this again. And again. And again!
If you end up trying this recipe (which I highly recommend you do!) post your results here! I would love to hear how you made out!
In case you were wondering, this is the slow cooker I have. I absolutely LOVE it!
