Slow Cooking Thursday for August 9

My crockpot recipe today is from my friend Patty over at Patty's Pantry. This is a really delicious and different slow cooker recipe.


4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. minced crystallized ginger
1 C. sliced celery
1 small can sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 onion, sliced
2 C. chicken broth
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 C. sliced fresh mushrooms
1 16 ounce can bean sprouts
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Cut chicken into strips 2 inches long and 1/2 inch thick. Place in crock pot with salt, ginger, celery, water, chestnuts, onion, broth and soy sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.

Turn control to high. Add mushrooms and bean sprouts.
Cook 15 minutes more.

Sprinkle with slivered almonds when serving.

Serves 4-6

    Yum This is going into my must make file. Can you give me the link to Patty's. I have lost it.

  2. Hi Elizabeth,

    Here's the address --

    This chicken dish is delicious -- I would never have thought of making chop suey in a slow cooker. But it's wonderful! You could thicken it a bit with cornstarch if you like it thicker, but it's great as is.

    Hi Mrs T..
    I hope everyone enjoys this recipe. I have thickened this with corn starch too. Sometimes it just wasn't thick enough to suit me. I am so glad you mentioned that. I haven't made this in awhile, sounds kind of good!

    Blessings to you, Patty

  7. Hi everyone,

    It's so nice to see you all here at my kitchen table today!

    Patty, I was going through my file of slow cooker recipes, trying to decide what to share this time, when I happened upon my printout of your recipe -- and was reminded of how very delicious it is! I think it is just too good a recipe not to pass it on. Hope that was OK with you and that you are feeling better.

    God bless,

    Hi Mrs T...of course it is Okay! I am happy you liked it. I haven't been using my crock pot much this summer and I usually do in the summer months. I need to get back in the groove.

    Thank you for the well wishes. My ears are the same...but I am still praying for a big change!

    Blessings ~ Patty

  10. Oh YUM.....can't wait to try it.

    I have not had chop suey and didn't know that I would be able to make it so easily. :-) Woo Hoo for Crock pots. :-)

  12. We sure have a nice group around the kitchen table today!

    Have a nice weekend, everyone!

    God bless,
