      No – I would assemble the ingredients then place in a freezer bag. Then you can defrost before putting in the slow cooker.

    These came out fantastic, topped w/broccoli slaw. We had lots of leftovers, so I turned lunch the next day into quesadilla’s with these!

    Why were some of these ingredients not on the shopping list? ( I.e. sesame oil, red wine vinegar and ginger) I noticed in the chicken recipes call for chicken broth or bullion cubes, which weren’t on the list also. I don’t want to sound ungrateful. I am new to your site and my husband and I are trying the crockpot meals this month. Thank you for your time that you have put into this, it’s a great resource.

      Nicole – there is a separate pantry list in the printable pack. That pantry list is a list of items that Aldi does not sell and/or items that most people have in their pantry.

    What type of ‘greens’ do you use with this recipe? I don’t see them listed in the ingredients but do see one person say they used broccoli slaw? Is it more a personal taste or is their a certain type of greens that make this dish just right? :-)

  4. Nicole says

    One of the ingredients listed is:
    1 tablespoon seasoned rice wine vinegar
    What does that even mean? Thanks

    I’m going to modify this by using some more authentic Korean bulgogi sauce, which isn’t an Aldi item but you can usually pick it up pretty cheaply at any local Asian market or even from Amazon. I love Brooke’s lettuce wrap idea too.

    Has anyone tried this with chicken? I wonder how I’d need to change up anything so that the chicken wouldn’t dry out.
