Slow Cooker Almond Chicken

Hi Lil Luna readers. You know I could talk about yummy treats all day long. Sugar is my friend, and I’m ok with that! I’ll be taking a break from treats, however, to share two awesome Asian recipes that ROCKED the house. Literally, the family went nutsos over these recipes. The first, I’ll share today and the second, you’ll have to wait until next week 🙂

Today’s recipe, Slow Cooker Almond Chicken, was my husbands favorite! He was moaning and groaning (in a good way) after each bite.  And for good reason too! This chicken was super tender and bursting with the perfect amount of flavor. Check out how easy this was and how delicious it looks. I’m thinking this will be a new favorite crock pot recipe for the books!

We decided to leave out the water chestnuts and I’m glad we did. The almonds created a tiny crunch and I think the chestnuts would have made it a bit too crunchy and it would have taken away from the tenderness of the chicken.

  • DIFFICULTY: Simple
  • HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 5-6
  • ANY CHANGES MADE: Marinaded our chicken in Italian dressing, used onion flakes instead of onion, used ginger paste, used shaved almonds, no water chestnuts, used minced garlic in place of chopped.
  • ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: Nothing. This was awesome!!
