  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • Chop chicken into 2 inch pieces. Add to a large resealable bag and add corn starch. Seal and shake to coat chicken.
  • Drizzle a large skillet with the oil and preheat over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute 1-2 minutes (just to brown the very outside, chicken should not be cooked through) and remove from heat. Add to a greased slow cooker.

Pro tip: Add 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes for a bit of heat!
