What are the benefits of using a slow cooker?

A slow cooker is a kitchen appliance that cooks food at a low temperature for a long time. It is often used in the preparation of soups, stews, and other types of braised dishes.

There are many benefits to using a slow cooker.

The first benefit is that it’s an energy-efficient way to cook food. Slow cookers use about one-tenth the energy of an electric oven or stovetop.

The second benefit is that you can put all your ingredients into the pot before you go to work and then come home to dinner already made!

The third benefit is that it’s easy on your wallet because you can buy cheaper cuts of meat and they will turn out tender and delicious!

What are some variations that can be made to the lo-mein?

Variations of lo-mein dishes are endless. Some variations include:

1) adding water chestnuts to the mix

2) adding chicken or beef to the dish

3) adding mushrooms

4) using brown rice noodles instead of lo-mein noodles

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into strips
  • 1 cup diagonally sliced carrots
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh celery
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 8 oz (240 ml) sliced broccoli
  • 1 cup (250 ml) chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 8 oz (240 g) package prepared lo-mein noodles

Method

Step 1

In a large nonstick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken strips and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Remove cooked chicken from the skillet and set aside.

Step 2

In a slow cooker, combine carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and broccoli florets. Top with browned chicken.

Step 3

In a small mixing bowl, combine chicken broth, soy sauce, and minced ginger. Mix well. Pour mixture over chicken in the slow cooker.

Step 4

Cover slow cooker and cook on low-heat setting for 6-8 hours or until chicken and vegetables are tender.

In another small mixing bowl, combine cornstarch and water. Mix until water dissolved completely. Stir cornstarch mixture into the chicken mixture.

Increase heat to high. Cover slow cooker and cook for further 15 minutes. Serve chicken and vegetables over prepared noodles.
