Slow Cooker Chicken Chow Mein

Slow Cooker Chicken Chow Mein

My first food love will always be salads but I have a serious crush on Chinese food! I love Beef and Broccoli, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Toasted Cashew Chicken and Crispy Fried Rice. I also love my slow cooker – who doesn’t love a machine that cooks dinner for you?!!!! So the fact that this recipe combines chinese food with a slow cooker has my name written all over it. I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out when I tried it but I couldn’t believe how tasty it is. It was SUPER easy to make and my whole family loved it.

Notes:

This dish freezes extremely well. I make enough rice ahead of time and portion out single servings of the rice and chow mein into tupperware containers. When freezing for future use I do not add any Oriental Dressing. Once I reheat the dish then I add the dressing.

For a gluten free meal make sure to use gluten free tamari or soy sauce.
