The chicken thighs go on the bottom and the veggies go in next.
Pour the broth all over.

Well, why not. 🙂 The slow cooker makes dinner time so easy.
You can make this recips on the stove top but it is so nice coming home to dinner already being cooked! This really helps us stick to the menu plan and not get tempted to eat out.
Plus, the chicken is so tender and flavorful from being slow cooked all day!
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LO MEIN AND CHOW MEIN?
Both of these dishes use the same type of noodles and often it is the same recipe. The difference is in how the noodles are cooked.
Chow mein noodles are normally cooked to be crispy and lo mein noodles are served soft from being boiled.

You can use anything your family likes. We also really love beef lo mein as a nice change from the chicken.
Shrimp is another tasty idea in lo mein. If you are looking for slow cooker lo mein weight watchers ideas, try bulking up the recipe with more veggies!
You can also add sambal oelek for added flavor. It is a type of chili sauce. Oyster sauce is also good as well.

Lo mein noodles are a type of Chinese wheat flour noodles.
