I know a lot of you are super busy during the weekdays, so I wanted to figure out a recipe that you could cook while you’re at work. There’s nothing better than walking through your front door after a long day of work and smelling the delicious flavors that have been cooking for you all day. Nothing to worry about, dinner is finished, and you don’t have to stress yourself any more than you already are!

If you guys haven’t already got some fish sauce, go ahead and give it a try! I know, I know…it smells absolutely rancid. BUT, trust me here it will add a depth of flavor to almost every savory dish you make. I started adding it to pretty much everything I cook now – stews, grilled chicken, marinara sauce – you name it! Just hold your nose, and toss it in, you’ll believe me when you taste it.

Though, if you do get fish sauce, opt for a good brand like Red Boat Fish Sauce. This brand is a bit pricy, I know that, but you don’t use a lot of it at a time, so it will last you months. Most of the store bought fish sauces (even the ones in Asian grocery stores) will have tons of extra additives, giving either ingredients you don’t want or a carb count you don’t want.

You can without a doubt use frozen chicken thighs for this recipe, heck – that’s what I did! They end up bringing a bit more moisture to the party, so when you let the sauce reduce at the end, make sure you take the lid off of the slow cooker. Oh, and if you don’t have a slow cooker I highly suggest getting one. Letting your food cook all day while you’re at work is an awesome thing, giving you both a stress free dinner and more time on your hands.

Just remember that chicken is pretty protein heavy, and although we are using the fattier cuts plus adding butter to this, we still need a side dish to balance out the protein to the fats. Feel free to serve with a side salad of mixed greens topped with cheese, hard boiled egg, bacon, and ranch!
