  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  2. Put chicken and all ingredients except for cornstarch and water into the slow cooker and stir.
  3. Cook on Low setting for 8 to 10 hours.
  4. Turn Slow Cooker to High setting and combine cornstarch and cold water in small bowl until dissolved.
