I spotted this recipe in a little grocery-store cookbook for slow cookers. Since I love Asian dishes with chicken and almonds I decided to give this one a try. I added a couple of ingredients to make it even better.

How to Make GINGER ALMOND CHICKEN

  2. Stir together onion, ginger, teriyaki sauce, and orange juice in a small bowl. Coat chicken with mixture. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 2 hours, or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Turn heat setting to HIGH and add vegetables. Cover. Cook 20 to 30 minutes longer, stirring once, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  4. Stir in almonds, scallions, and orange zest. Serve over rice.
