Slow Cooker Asian Glazed Chicken

slowcookerasianglazedchicken
I have almost made it to the end of my pregnancy. It is a busy time for my little family. Especially preparing for the babies arrival. It is pretty exciting when you make it to your weekly doctor appointments because you know that things are getting close! I was starting to panic because I really don’t have anything. Except for 1000 bows. 🙂  Luckily I have got some amazing blogger friends that threw me a baby shower on Saturday!

I knew that my last doctor appointment was going to be a busy day. Busy days call for slow cooker meals. I was able to throw this delicious asian glazed chicken into the slow cooker within 5 minutes. We came home from my doctor to an awesome meal. The chicken has a sweet asian glaze over the top and it was so easy to throw over some rice. I love how tender and moist chicken is in the slow cooker. The flavor was amazing and the entire family loved it. Even picky eater approved. 🙂

  1. I made this tonight and it was a hit – even with my somewhat picky 4 year old! However, despite going back for seconds, and knowing we will eat leftovers of tomorrow night, there is still a lot left. Have you ever successfully frozen and reheated it later? Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. I can’t wait to,try all of the chicken recipe. I will try a couple of these starting Monday. Thanks. I will be looking for several of your cook books.

  3. The Asian Glazed Chicken was to die for. It was such a fantastic quick and east recipe, and it’s also extremely yummy. Who can beat that!

    I’m definitely going to make this again, maybe add it to a stir-fry, tasty!! Thank you so much for bringing back a bit of inspiration to my Crock Pot Alyssa!

    Over all you should definitely give this a try! Delicious.
