GLUTEN-FREE CROCKPOT ASIAN CHICKEN

GLUTEN FREE CROCKPOT ASIAN CHICKEN – KID APPROVED!

As of late, my go-to healthy dinner item has been the GLUTEN-FREE CROCKPOT ASIAN CHICKEN, inspired by aĀ recipe I foundĀ on one of my new favorite sites, A Nutritionist Eats.Ā Ā (I tweakedĀ the recipe to make it suitable for my tummy issues and health concerns.) Ā I used my mom’s hand me down crockpot – a super oldie but goodie that has lasted remarkably over the years and has been serving up only the best!

Aside from this dish being super easy to make and a favorite of my kids, it costs almost nothing to make. Ā I got my organic grass-fed chicken from Whole Foods for about $6 bucks!
