  • 1
    Remove any fat from chicken. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook about 5 minutes, turning once, until brown.
  • 2
    In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, place carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Add chicken. Mix broth, soy sauce and gingerroot; pour over chicken.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into chicken mixture. Stir in broccoli and pea pods. Increase heat setting to High; cover and cook 15 minutes. Serve over noodles.

  • Use just snow pea pods instead of the combination of broccoli and pea pods. Or if you'd prefer, stir 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms in with the broccoli.
