Treat yourself to an easy weeknight dinner recipe that the whole family will love! This Slow Cooker Asian Chicken and Noodles Recipe serves up chicken that has been slow cooking all day in a delightfully flavorful Asian-inspired sauce, and is ever so tender and juicy.
It’s served over Japanese soba noodles and fresh broccoli, which are prepared just before serving. Everything comes together so nicely, and tastes incredible. It’s a great no muss, no fuss dish that is pretty low in Weight Watchers Points. And it reheats really well the next day, too!
This could easily be made with beef, pork, or tofu instead of the chicken, if preferred. I’ll definitely be making this one again and again.

Tried this recipe?Let me know how it was!
Just made this last night and it was a big hit! The whole family just loved it. Thank you!
Love your site and this recipe in particular. Anyway you could avoid the auto-play video ads? They are super annoying and loud and generally unpleasant. Thanks!
My ex wife ate it with the poison sauce
Hahahah! Hope she survived!
I made this–it was FANTASTIC!!! Yum!
This was perfect! We’re not big broccoli fans, so I threw some peas and shredded carrot in instead, and it was divine. Definitely worth putting on the menu rotation!
At first I thought this was a dish meant for Snow White. You may want to edit direction #1. I think you meant hoisin sauce not poison sauce. Gave me a chuckle on a very long and cold Monday. ;)
Going to make this tomorrow….but you may want to change the “POISON Sauce” to “Hoisin”. Thank you for the good laugh!!! (It’s in step one of your instructions). HAHAHAHAHA
This sounds delicious. I’m not too sure about the poison sauce though (as listed in step 1)…that might scare my family. ;)
I think it should be hoisin sauce in the directions, not poison…tho it did make me LOL! Recipe looks wonderful…thanks!
i know you meant to say hoisin sauce but poison sauce works just as well :P
Not sure about the “poison sauce” ;). Autocorrect strikes again.
I am guessing in the instructions you mean hoison sauce as opposed to poison sauce: ) Love your blog and recipes!
Sounds good although I don’t think I want any poison sauce in my dish…LOL. Darn auto correct. (Check #1 of instructions). I think I will have to make this soon.
“Poison sauce?” Check the spelling in your instructions!
I hope the sauce isn’t poisoned! (See direction 1)
