Welcome to my Slimming World BEST EVER Chinese Chicken in the Slow Cooker. This is totally Syn Free and purposely used as part of my SP Days on Slimming World. It is full to bursting with Chinese flavours, sticky and perfect for when you are craving a Chinese but want one that is free of Syns.
I know…..I know what you are going to say.
Since when was a traditional Chinese stir fry style dish ever cooked in the slow cooker. Well I have and it is and its so good that you will want to go back for seconds.
You see when you normally have a Chinese in the wok, you will add olive oil and other seasonings and before you know it you have added rather a few of the Syns on what is supposed to be a super healthy meal.
But if you cook this in the slow cooker (like I have) you don’t need oils, you can just throw all the ingredients in, mix it together and then come back several hours later and you have this super delicious meal.
It will be loaded with so much fresh vegetables (and chicken) that it will be so filling that you will not need any noodles and therefore you won’t feel like you are missing out on your SP day.
You could also recreate this with prawns, pork or even with beef. Then throw all the vegetables into the slow cooker and you have dinner.
We cooked this on the high setting on our slow cooker, but you could also cook it on low and double the time. That way it can go on before you go to work and then be done when you get home. Then instead of reaching for whatever you can find because you are hungry you can just stir the ingredients inside your slow cooker and dish up.#SlimmingWorld Best Ever #Chinese #Chicken In The Slow Cooker #Recipe via recipe_thisClick To Tweet
- Clean and thinly slice the spring onion.
- Dice the red pepper and the courgette.
- Dice the chicken breasts.
- Place everything into the slow cooker or the Instant Pot and mix well with your hands. Cook on high for four hours.
I heard this after dinner today from both my boys “absolutely delicious but not enough”. So even though I consider it enough for four, I think they think the portion size is for two. I will let you be the judge of who is right and who is wrong!
We used the Instant Pot on the slow cooker function to make this recipe. It was because it was already out and it automatically sets to 4 hours making it an easy alternative to the traditional slow cooker.
