Using a stir-fry sauce is an easy way to create a slow cooker meal without the fuss. Just add protein and vegetables for a complete meal.
Just getting back from vacation, I’m still trying to get in to the groove of things. I need simplicity right now. Perfect time to get back to my 5-recipe series using healthy store-bought sauces. Yes you read correctly. I don’t always use a homemade sauce. I key to finding healthy sauces in the store is to read the back label. Do you recognize the ingredients? Are they all-natural or do they fit your dietary restrictions? If so then there’s no shame in buying it.
This is recipe number 2 in my 5-recipe series using some healthy sauces I’ve found or like. This time I’m using House of Tsang’s Saigon Sizzle Stir-Fry sauce. Store-bought sauces are great in the slow cooker! Depending on the sauce you might have to dilute it with water. This sauce was on the thick side so I added a little bit of water. In general the ratio I recommend is approximately 1 cup total of sauce for 2 lbs of meat.
It might not look like enough sauce going in but trust me, it is.
- ¾ cup House of Tsang's Saigon Sizzle Stir-Fry Sauce
- ¼ cup water
- 2 lbs chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 lbs stir-fry vegetables
- Add chicken and vegetables to the slow cooker.
- In a small bowl, mix together water & stir-fry sauce.
- Pour sauce in to the slow cooker.
- Cook LOW 3-5 hours or HIGH 2-4.
I bought a packet organic of stir-fry vegetables from Sprouts that included carrots, broccoli, and snap peas but I encourage you to use your preferred veggies.
I served this on top of cauliflower rice but it’s great over brown rice as well.
