Due to the lower heating element in older slow cookers, the sauce may not thicken in the slow cooker. If that is the case, spoon out all the sauce from the slow cooker into a small saucepan and bring to a boil on high heat until it thickens up. Combine with rest of ingredients and serve.
* Feel free to add in any other vegetables of your choice. Broccoli, snow peas and bell peppers would work well in this dish.
*Adding the fresh pre-cooked or cooked dry noodles JUST 20 minutes PRIOR to serving will ensure that the noodles will NOT get too soft and mushy.
**Use pork instead of chicken or extra firm or deep-fried tofu for a meatless meal. I also have a vegetarian version on my site.
