A couple of weeks ago, Kian was in Singapore for work. While he was away, preparing dinners at home can be a little bit of a challenge. Especially if we have after school activities and both Bella and Jamie are requesting for my attention, all while I am rushing to get dinner ready before we head out for Bella's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. And I always want my kids to be able to have a hot meal soon after we get home from after school activities. They will be starving and will have no patience to wait for me cook them a meal. It is like having Chef Ramsay yelling at you on Masterchef, "You have 5 minutes left on the clock! Why isn't the food on the plate yet!?"
So, I broke out the busy mom's best friend, the slow cooker. With some time management and planning, dinner preparation can really be a breeze. With this Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken recipe, all I needed was 15 to 20 minutes of preparation work. Right before I head out to pick Jamie up from preschool, I prepared the ingredients and set the Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken to cook and had rice on a timer in my trusty little electric rice cooker.
Shortly after we got home, Bella alighted from her school bus and I was able to give my full attention to the both of them because dinner was already cooking and will be ready in a couple of hours. This works great for my family and out schedule and I hope this easy to prepare recipe can help with your busy week nights too.
