😋Marcie’s Asian Inspired Pulled Chicken:
–>> Put in crock pot:
12 frozen thin-sliced chicken breasts
–>> For sauce:
In food processor (or by hand):
–>> Chop up:
1 cup cilantro
1 cup Italian leaf parsley
6 garlic cloves (peeled)
2 inch ginger nub (peeled) and sliced
–>> Pulse until finely chopped. Set aside.
–>> Into a mason jar:
3/4 c low sodium soy sauce or wheat free alternative
1/2 c garlic style coconut aminos
2 TBS toasted sesame oil
3 TBS Organic Honey or Raw Honey
2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp Chinese five spice
Juice and zest of 2 small mandarine oranges
–>> Add finely chopped herb/garlic mixture to sauce ingredients in mason jar.
–>> Place lid on mason jar, secure tightly and give sauce ingredients a vigorous shake.
–>> pour sauce over frozen chicken breast in crock pot. Add 1/2-1 tsp freshly ground sea salt over chicken. (Depending on your salt preference)
–>> place lid on crock pot and set crock pot on high for 7 hours.
–>> 30 mins to 1 hour before crock pot timer goes off, carefully lift lid off crock pot and set aside. While chicken is still in crock pot, using two forks, shred chicken. Stir it all up mixing juices well into chicken. Set forks aside. Place lid back on crock pot. Let heat back up until nice and steamy.
–>> While chicken is heating, roast in oven or a pan, 1 cup raw cashews. (I toss cashews in cast iron skillet on medium flame and toss until lightly golden) (about 3-5 mins) Once roasted cashews are cool, coarsely chop them and set aside.
–>> once chicken is done, give it another stir. Pour chopped cashews into crock pot and stir.
–>> if you are not serving this with the chopped veggie slaw, then you will want to slice up a bunch of green onions and toss them into your Asian inspired pulled chicken right before serving.
–>> once complete, your Asian inspired pulled chicken is ready for your dining pleasure :)!!
