Chinese Chicken (Crock Pot)

Simply put, you MUST try this recipe.  It is easy and wonderful.  My husband likes it.  My kids like it (except the vegetarian one!).  I like it.  It is great and will definitely become a staple in the Witherspoon Family Dinner menu!

Chinese Chicken
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp water
1-2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 tsp. ground ginger

Place the chicken in the crock pot.  Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.  Cook on low 6-8 hours or high for about 4 hours.

That's it!!!  It is done and it is delicious!!!  (The original recipe says to shred the chicken.  I find this unnecessary because mine always just fall apart.)

I serve this with some pre-packaged Asian noodles.  I'm sure it would be healthier to make my own, but this is quicker and works just as well.  My hubby likes the spicy ones.  The chicken is sweet and goes well with a sweeter flavor.  Fried rice would work, too.

I also add some steamed broccoli or a green salad.

Seriously - make it.  You won't regret it!!! :)
