Some nights, there is nothing easier than picking up Chinese takeout on the way home from work. And to be honest, Chinese food is a craving that cannot be denied, at least that’s how it is for me. So how about a recipe that answers the “what’s for dinner?” dilemma and takes care of your Chinese food craving? This slow cooker Almond Chicken is your answer.
Grab some chicken breast and quickly brown it on the stove for about 5 minutes, before adding it to the slow cooker. Then add some ginger and garlic to punch up flavor.
Throw in the other ingredients and set your slow cooker on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours. At the very end of cooking (when you get home from work) make a quick sauce with white wine, cornstarch and sugar to bring all the flavors together. Also add some fresh peapods to round out the dish.
Serve over rice with a sprinkling of raw almonds. Delicious, easy and ready when you are.
