Take Out Crock Pot Chicken & Broccoli

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!!

Today I am sharing a recipe that I am in “LOVE” with.  This recipe is so spot on in taste……I almost couldn’t believe it myself.

I really enjoy being able to replicate a restaurant dish at home.  I like knowing, what’s in my food and finding small ways of possibly making it a bit healthier without sacrificing the flavorful taste.

Let’s dive right in and get cooking………..

(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

Ingredients:

1 lb. boneless skinless organic chicken (breast or thigh.. I used thigh)

4 C organic broccoli ( fresh or frozen I used frozen)

1 C organic low sodium chicken stock

1/2 C Amino Acid or low sodium soy sauce

1/3 C organic brown sugar

1/2 C organic diced onion

2 tbsp organic cornstarch

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

Seasoning:

1 tsp of the following

garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder, and black pepper

Method:

1. Cut your chicken into bite size pieces and place in a bowl.  Add the seasoning to the chicken toss to evenly coat. Set aside for now.

2. In the crock pot add your broth, amino acid, brown sugar, sesame oil and cornstarch. Stir to dissolve cornstarch and sugar.

3.  Add your onion and chicken. Stir and set your crock pot on high for 2.5 hours.

4. When you have 30 minutes remaining, add your broccoli.

Once done serve over rice.

Your chicken will be tender and flavorful and your broccoli will be cooked with a bit of a crunch.

I am not a fan of soft veggies……but if you prefer your veggies to be softer just add them in when you have 35 minutes remaining.

Remember to make a recipe your own…..if your are not a broccoli fan…..use the veggies you love.

You can also substitute the meat for whatever you desire. Have fun and be creative!!

Crock Pot General Tso’s Chicken (The lighter version)

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!

image

For years, I would only cook in my Crock Pot in the fall/winter months. Well, this summer my crock pot has been getting great use.

I’ve been thinking of making this dish for quite a while.

So today I just went for it. I decided to use the Crock Pot because my time is limited. This way I can accomplish everything I need to and still have a healthy meal prepared when I get home.

Here’s what you will need:

8 organic boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/4 C Amino Acid (or low sodium soy sauce)

1/4 C Rice Vinegar

1/4 C Organic Hoisin Sauce (this is the must have for this recipe it does not have to be organic)

1 C Organic diced peppers ( I use an organic diced frozen blend of  red, yellow & green)

2 Tbsp Raw Honey

1 Tbsp Organic Cornstarch

1 Tbsp Water

Seasoning:

Mix the following in a small bowl

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

1 tsp of paprika, garlic powder and onion powder

 

Method:

1. Cut your chicken into medium size chunks and place in a large bowl.

2. Add your seasonings and cornstarch to the chicken. ( mix to get the chicken evenly coated and set aside)

3. For the sauce in a medium bowl add your Amino Acid, Vinegar, Hoisin Sauce, Honey & Water (stir to combine)

4. Pour sauce into the crock pot, add your chicken and pepper (stir to get everything evenly mixed)

5. Set your crock pot on High for 4 hours

Serve over rice and with veggies of your choosing.

I like mine spicy so I add red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper…can you say ” HOT”.

One tipped I picked up for making any kind of fried rice is to use rice that has been cooked the day before. This prevents mushy fried rice.
