This is a great "set and go" chicken recipe using a slow cooker! Ground coriander adds a floral and citrus-y zest! You can use the chicken in many other dishes, get creative! Goes great with just a bed of rice, but also can be diced up for salads or on the side of a heaping plate of steamed fresh vegetables.
1/4 Cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons organic brown sugar
2 Teaspoons garlic
1 Tablespoon ginger
1 chopped yellow onion
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 Teaspoon ground coriander
1 1/4 Pound chicken breast
2 sliced carrots
2 Cups cooked sushi rice (optional)
1 Tablespoon corn starch
1/4 Cup water
1/4 Cup diced cilantro
1) In a slow cooker, stir together soy sauce, sugar, garlic, onion, vinegar, coriander, and salt and pepper. Add chicken and carrots, toss to coat. Cover and cook on low until chicken is tender, about 6 hours.
2) (optional) Cook rice according to package instructions.
3) In a small saucepan, whisk cornstarch with water. Ladle about half of the cooking liquid from the slow cooker into the pan; whisk to combine. Bring to a boil; cook until thickened, about 1 minute.
4) Serve the chicken with sauce and rice if desired, and garnish with cilantro.
