Crock-Pot Chicken & Broccoli

Crock-Pot Chicken & Broccoli is one of our favorite takeout dishes, so when we want a lighter take on it, we switch out the pork for boneless skinless bird breasts.
The sauce, made sincerely with soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger, is one you will flip to time and again once more.
