Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken sliced, I used boneless and skinless thighs
  • 12 ounces konaberry kelp noodles or other low carb noodle
  • 1 bunch bok choy or napa cabbage washed and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Chicken Marinade

  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos soy aminos or tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic paste

Sauce

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the chicken with the marinade and leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Spray inside of slow cooker with non-stick coating spray. Add marinated chicken to the slow cooker and cook on low for 1-2 hours or high for 1 hour stirring once or twice until cooked through.
  • Take cooked chicken out of the slow cooker. Place garlic, ginger and Chinese cabbage in the bottom of your slow cooker and put cooked chicken on top.
  • Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl and pour over all the ingredients in slow cooker.
  • Cook on high for 30 minutes - 1 hour or low for 1.5 - 2 hours, stirring occasionally to distribute the sauce evenly.
  • About 10 minutes before cooking time is up, prepare kelp noodles by rinsing and soaking in water.
  • Add the noodles into the slow cooker and use tongs to cover noodles with the sauce. Add xanthan gum or other low carb thickener if desired.
  • Turn slow cooker on high and cook an additional 10 - 15 minutes.
