Pinterest challenge: slow cooker coconut ginger chicken & vegetables

Slow cooker coconut ginger chicken & vegetablesI had this recipe saved on Pinterest for sooo long. Almost as long as Pinterest existed actually! Back then I did not have a slow cooker or a casserole dish, so this was never an option. And I am glad that I got it out of my system now! Don’t get me wrong, it was nice. But I guess I had very high expectations of this and this did not turn out to be amazing. I think I should have doubled on ginger and added some chilly flakes as suggested in adult version. I can’t believe, I never even liked spicy food! Anyway, try it for yourself… you never know, maybe this is going to be your favourite dinner!Slow cooker coconut ginger chicken & vegetablesSLOW COOKER COCONUT GINGER CHICKEN & VEGETABLES adapted from Simple Bites
