Crockpot Chicken Low Mein

I wrote about making this dish a few months ago but I'm only now getting around to sharing the recipe. Low Mein is one of my favorite dishes to get when we order Chinese takeout so I decided to try my hand at it and it came out amazing! I went to the Oriental market to get a few of the ingredients such as the Low Mein noodles and the baby bok choy. I found the original recipe here from Life Made Sweeter and adapted it to my liking. As the original recipe states, you can use pasta noodles if you can't find Low Mein noodles. I seriously can't wait to make this recipe again.

2 uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts
14 oz. package steamed Lo Mein noodles
2 cups baby bok choy, chopped
1 cup snow peas
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
4 sprigs of green onion, chopped

Chicken Marinade
2 tsps low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp corn starch

1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce 
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp hoisin sauce

What To Do:
1. Marinate chicken with marinade sauce in the fridge for 30 minutes or more.
2. Spray inside of crockpot with cooking spray and add chicken breasts. Cook on low for 2 hours.
3. Remove chicken from crockpot and cut into small cubes. Place carrots, garlic, snow peas, green onions, ginger and bok choy in slow cooker. Add chopped chicken back to crockpot on tops of the vegetables.

4. Mix together sauce ingredients in a bowl and pour over ingredients in crockpot. 
5. Cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
6. Add fresh Low Mein noodles and cook for an additional 30 minutes on high or until noddles are fully cooked.
