Slow Cooker Shredded Asian Chicken Over Jasmine Rice

It’s been a while since I actually cooked. I felt I had to ease into it.

If you follow my other blog, you know that a few months back I filed for divorce. The whole process has been physically and emotionally draining and left me with little motivation to cook. Instead, I’ve resorted to making processed foods and going through drive thrus. Now, I’m not a purist. I don’t shun foods that I didn’t grow or raise myself but there comes a time when a girl just needs to cook.

Because my oven isn’t the most reliable, I decided to break out my slow cooker. My slow cooker is old. Like from the early 90’s old but it gets the job done. Not wanting to make the typical roast and potatoes that I usually make, I decided to rift off my Asian Meatball recipe and make Shredded Asian Chicken over Jasmine Rice.

I wish I could say these were from my garden – next year!

I won’t bore you with pictures of me putting chicken in my slow cooker and then a picture of each ingredient being added. I’m sure you can all do that on your own. But I will add a picture of these fabulous green onions. I love the bite that fresh green onions add to my dishes plus, they make them look prettier too!

In fact, all three of these ingredients make your food look and taste better. But enough pictures of vegetables and toppings, because I said I wasn’t going to bore you. Now to the real deal. The recipe. It’s ridiculously easy. If you know me, I like slow cooker recipes where you dump and run. This my friends, is a dump and run.

    I love slow cooker meals, and do something very similar with green tea rice- my family loves it, and I can never make enough. I will certainly be trying your recipe!

  6. Oh my gosh this looks delicious! I’m a picky eater and chicken is pretty much on the menu almost every day so I’m always looking for different dishes to change it up so I don’t feel like I’m eating the same thing all the time! I need to get a slow cooker but I’m saving this recipe to use when I have it!
