I panicked today because I want baked potatoes in the Crock=Pot but do not have aluminum foil. Googled and found out I do not need the aluminum foil! Woo Hoo!

I still have not prepared the General Tso yet. But, would like to soon. Just thinking that the housemate would protest. Her way or no way.

Well, time to sip my mocha. I have learned via YouTube that slurping your coffee is now politically correct. LOL

Have a good one!

I sure hope you don't think I scolded you. I was just letting you know a trick I learned, as I have little use for ginger except for when I wish to add a little pickled ginger. My wife cannot stand it, so the raw frozen is the budget-friendly choice.

I do enjoy brown sugar and soy sauce. Have you ever tried adding a little white vinegar to that? It will be similar to gyoza/potsticker dipping sauce. Honest.

Thanks for the scolding. LOL

When I do attempt to fix General Tso, I am going to use much brown sugar and soy sauce. I love the duo together.

Just to let you know, a little real ginger goes a long way. You can buy a small knob of it and then freeze it. When you need, just cut a small slice or chunk and store it back in the freezer. Just saying, they sometimes want a lot for powdered ginger and the raw stuff is actually nicer.

When we recall that a lot of foods we cook are basic & local, even Mexican or Italian can be "fusion" with ingredients. Asian foods are the same. A lot of the reason American-Chinese food changed at the start was that certain ingredients were not readily available and so they adapted (yes, even back before 1815).

Have fun. Play with your food, you're an adult now for heaven's sake.

Thanks Gralan!

I don't have ginger.

I do not have any stir-fry veggies. But, I am sure canned would do just as good. Right?

Darn right cheaper than a Chinese restaurant!

Please go and sign up for her newsletter, click on an ad or two to support her page. This is a wonderful resource.

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken, cut in 1-inch chunks
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce (I use La Choy because we are gluten-free)
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (add more to taste at the table if you'd prefer more heat)
1 (16-ounce) package stir-fry vegetables (to add later)

The Directions.
Use a 4-quart slow cooker.
Put the chicken into the bottom of your crockpot and then add the garlic, brown sugar, ginger, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes.
Toss the chicken to fully coat with the sauce ingredients.
Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, then add the frozen vegetables.
Re-cover and cook on high for an hour, or until the veggies are fully hot and the chicken has reached desired tenderness.
Serve with white or brown or fried rice.
