  • Cover and cook on low-heat-setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. To serve, place chicken and cooked peas on each serving plate. Spoon cooking liquid over chicken. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. If desired garnish with additional green onions.

Tips

Tips: Remove strings and tips from pea pods. Cook fresh pea pods, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. (Cook frozen pea pods according to package directions.) Drain well.

For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
