Soy-glazed Chicken with Stir-fried Vegetables

Here's a new crock pot staple at our house:
This has a flavorful asian sauce and is super easy. It's one of my favorites for days I want to put dinner in early and forget about it. I have also made it with boneless, skinless chicken breasts, although the meat was much drier than when we used thighs. I might try cutting the cooking time down to keep breasts more moist, but for best results, use thighs. They are cheaper, anyway. That's a little shout-out for YOU, Marion :).
Serves 4Hands-On Time: 30mTotal Time: 4.5-8 hours



  1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix together the sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, fish sauce, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
  2. Cover and cook until the chicken is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  3. Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
  4. Meanwhile, transfer the chicken to a plate. Pour the cooking liquid into a large skillet and boil until slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Heat the oil in a second large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the snow peas, bok choy, bell pepper, scallions, and garlic and cook, tossing frequently, until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Serve with the chicken and rice; drizzle with the cooking liquid.
