Introduction: Take Out Crock Pot Chicken & Broccoli
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………..
Step 1: Ingredients and Method
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
1 tsp of the following garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder, and black pepper
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 with 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!!
