What to do:

  1. Dice up your chicken breast. 
  2. Put 1/4 cup corn starch in a ziplock bag.

6. Give it all a good stir. Cover with lid and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4.  30 minutes before your ready to eat stir in 2 teaspoons of corn starch.

This is so easy.  You can freeze it once it is cooked. Or you can do the prep work and have it ready to go as a freezer meal. Either way it does well.

Serve over rice or over angel hair pasta.
