Delicious and so easy to make! Cooking in a slow cooker is really convenient and easy. You also eat healthier if you use the crock pot. This recipe is fantastic. Just had my crock pot ginger soy chicken with brussel sprouts it for dinner with some jasmine rice. It goes really well with quinoa, couscous, or brown rice also! I love brussel sprouts!
You’ll find nearly 100 studies in PubMed (the health research database at the National Library of Medicine in Washington, D.C.) that are focused on Brussels sprouts, and over half of those studies involve the health benefits of this cruciferous vegetable in relationship to cancer. T
his connection between Brussels sprouts and cancer prevention should not be surprising since Brussels sprouts provide special nutrient support for three body systems that are closely connected with cancer development as well as cancer prevention. These three systems are (1) the body’s detox system, (2) its antioxidant system, and (3) its inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system. Chronic imbalances in any of these three systems can increase risk of cancer, and when imbalances in all three systems occur simultaneously, the risk of cancer increases significantly.
Among all types of cancer, prevention of the following cancer types is most closely associated with intake of Brussels sprouts: bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer.
Crock Pot Ginger Soy Chicken With Brussel Sprouts
1 pound chicken thighs boneless and skinless.
1 bag brussel sprouts
1 1/2 cups ginger soy sauce (I get mine at Whole Foods)
If you want the brussel sprouts to absorb all the sauce, cut them in half first. Cut the chicken in small pieces. Add the sauce and cook in slow cooker for 3-4 hours in low.
