Crockpot Chicken Stir Fry

Crockpots are genius! I made this recipe before the start of a long Tuesday and when I got home my house smelled amazing and all I had to do was make rice! Cooking a late dinner is zero fun after a long day. Once hangry sets in, you can’t think straight, you don’t want to be fumbling around in the kitchen or give up and end up eating weird leftovers or cereal again (nothing wrong with either of these things though!!)

  • Set crockpot on low heat setting and go away for 8-9 hours. Leave it alone. Go to work. Go to the gym. Get an oil change. Get a smoothie. Get a puppy. etc…
  • Before serving add frozen stir fry veggies and stir into cooked chicken. This will help break up the chicken also. Let them marinate together for about 15 minutes.
  • During this time, start your rice, quinoa, spaghetti squash, zucchini pasta, etc. Whatever you want to put this over or eating it plain will work! Leftovers may be frozen or pre packed for lunches for the week*20151202_133824

Enjoy!
