Slow Cooker ~Honey Garlic Ginger chicken with broccoli on whole grain pasta or brown rice
Have I mentioned that I LOVE my slow cooker? Ever since I started working in the evenings, I’ve depended on this appliance weekly. However, I have learned that you can’t do everything in the slow cooker. It is always best to have some rice or pasta cooked up and stored in the fridge, so that you can pair your grains with whatever you are cooking in your slow cooker. Pasta after 6 hrs in the slow cooker is just mush, and potatoes turn to goo.
So I have been working on recipes that take “most” of the work out of making a meal, but not all of it. On days that I am super busy, it sure helps to be able to throw a few ingredients into the pot and have a great meal in 6 hours.
Here is my latest recipe…inspired from somewhere on Pintrest. The recipe is so far from the original recipe I can’t even say that I revised it.
Hope you enjoy!
