Slow Cooker Asian Chicken with Broccoli and Rice

Thursday, July 9, 2020
Slow Cooker Asian Chicken with Rice and Broccoli recipe is a simple way to make a wonderful super easy dinner without a lot of fuss.

With rice and broccoli tossed in a soy sauce prepared ahead of time, you will have this basic chicken with Asian flavored sauce slow cooker with just a few basic ingredients.

It's kind of mock stir fry in flavors but healthier since it has none of the oils used for frying.

We love this healthy version with a little sweet and spicy flavored sauce.

Being very busy, this is a welcome change to standing over a hot stove and the perfect summertime meal.

Using a slow cooker or instant pot, this certainly eliminates time spent in the kitchen.

The best part is you can set the slow cooker on low and come home to a delicious hot meal that tastes like you've been cooking all day long.

I love Asian flavors and have made many copycat recipes along with homemade egg rolls this meal is always a welcome change in cuisines.
