  5. About 20 minutes before serving, add the green beans to the slow cooker and optional cornstarch slurry to the sauce.
  6. Re-seal the lid and cook for 15-20 minutes more until the green beans are tender and the sauce is starting to thicken.

  8. Drizzle sauce on top of chicken and vegetables. Garnish with optional minced parsley.

Notes

  • Use a quality soy sauce brand such as Kikkoman or San-J to get the best results. Low-grade soy sauce will affect the flavor of the dish.
  • Due to variations among crock pot brands, check doneness at the early end of the time range.
  • For a healthier option, pour the sauce into a fat separator before adding cornstarch. Separate out the fat and use only the remaining liquid for the thickening step.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave on medium power. Do not freeze.
