I posted a status of Facebook a few weeks ago about how excited I am that Crock-Pot season is around the corner. I was surprised at the mixed response! Some people are oober excited about it and other want to hold on to summer just a little bit longer.

I’ve got the fix. Crock-Pot recipes during summer! Why the heck not?

The one thing I always use in my Asian-inspired recipes is Nakano Rice Vinegar. It really is the perfect addition to any marinade or sauce. It gives it a bit of a tang and really helps bring out the flavor of the sauce!

In this case, I mixed all of my favorite flavors- Nakano rice vinegar, soy sauce, orange juice, garlic, hoisen sauce. Ummmm numm!

Crock-pot recipes are a savior for pretty much anyone. I work from home and still find crock-pot recipes to be my go-to. They are so hands off and there is SO MUCH FLAVOR! This Asian Chicken turned out extremely flavorful because essentially it was baking in saucy goodness for 8 hours! The word I am looking for is “infused.”

In case you are wondering, I served this dish with brown rice noodles. They are my absolute FAV. They cook super fast and are a great healthy substitution to white rice or any other noodle because they are 100% whole grain.
