Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken

Slow Cooker Mongolian Chicken @ A Nest in the Rocks

 

That’s why I was excited to find this recipe.  It sounded so good to me – and yet we didn’t have all of the original ingredients, so we played around a little bit.

We ended up with something that takes a few minutes to throw together and then cooks on its own.  There are no last minute items to do, which makes it especially great for those days when you have little time at home before dinner.

If you’re a fan of Asian food, this is definitely a recipe to try because it’s just as tasty as it is simple.

What’s your favorite busy-night dish?

  1. Your recipe looks really amazingly easy and simple to do. The sort of dish you could pop in, in the morning and then come home to later on in the day. I’d have to experiment with the timings as I’m out at work for more than 4 hours, but I expect if you cooked it on low then it would be okay for longer?

    • Hi, Sally! Yes, this is totally a leave-it-and-love-it-later dish. I don’t see why cooking it longer and slower would be a problem – it should just make the meat even more tender. I’d love to hear how it works out for you.

      Thanks for stopping by the Nest!
