Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Slow Cooker Asian Chicken

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is SLOW COOKER ASIAN CHICKEN!!

Your slow cooker, or crockpot, is a wonderful way to prepare a hot meal for your family without heating up the kitchen. Throw it together and forget it!  Slow cooking makes chicken tender and juicy. Add in Asian flavors and it’s simply scrumptious!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
