This is a different take on the traditional beef and broccoli for those wanting to cut down on their red meat consumption, swapping in chicken is a perfect substitute. The slow cooker will make the chicken extra tender and this sauce will have you craving for more.

1 teaspoon. ginger, minced

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (or coconut aminos)

1/4 cup honey
