The super-simple dinner dish!

Slow-cookers are every stressed-out cook’s saviour. While this dish tastes like something you would order in a high-end restaurant, thanks to the help of the slow-cooker, the recipe takes only 10 minutes preparation time. It is honestly one of the easiest dishes to make in the morning and enjoy as soon as you get home that night.

The only thing to add is some colour with steamed broccoli or carrots and a bed of rice to serve it on. Just ladle out the servings between plates and watch everyone fall in love with this tender chicken coated in a sweet ginger sauce!
