Instructions
  1. Stir together all the sauce ingredients until mostly smooth. Microwave it if it's difficult to stir, and add 1-2 tbs water if necessary.
  2. Place the chicken in the slow cooker, along with the minced garlic. Pour the sauce over it.
  3. Cover and cook until chicken is tender but not overcooked, about 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high. Remove chicken and either cut into bite sized chunks, or shred. Turn to low, and return the chicken to the slow cooker along with the additional veggies (like bean sprouts or cabbage) and let warm through.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the rice noodles per package instructions. Once cooked and drained, stir into the slow cooker to coat with sauce.
  5. Garnish with crushed peanuts and green onions, and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

For a low carb version, try serving the chicken in butter or romaine lettuce boats instead of using the noodles. It also tastesĀ great with Asian style cabbage salads.
