My slow cooker. It’s officially dusted off and ready for duty. During the warm summer months, our slow cooker gets a well needed rest while I fire up the grill with a drink in hand. But now that fall’s chill is in the air… the one that requires me to start wearing a jacket again… it’s time for that slow cooker to do it’s thang and get legit tasty meals on our table.
LOVE my slow cooker. It really does get a workout throughout the fall and winter. By the time I get Olivia packed up for and brought to the babysitter, put in a full day’s work, then get her home and get some play time in, making dinner is… a challenge. But not so much when I can throw a few ingredients into my slow cooker before work and come home to BOOM, dinner made. Oh, and let’s not forget those amazing smells that you walk home to. There’s nothing better than walking in the front door and getting a nice big intoxicating whiff of what’s for dinner.
Even more than weeknight dinners, I love my slow cooker for ridiculously easy entertaining. Specifically, absolutely legit sliders. They are the perfect casual party food and source for epic game day grub. My newest creation? These Slow Cooker Spicy Asian Chicken Sliders made with House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy™ Sauce .
You know by now that I love… LOVE… huge flavors. There’s nothing worse than seeing food with your eyes, getting excited, and then being hugely underwhelmed on first bite. Dull, lame, boring… that’s not my jam.
I want bold. I want diverse. I want my taste buds to jump out of my mouth and
shake my hand give me a fist bump.
With these Slow Cooker Spicy Asian Chicken Sliders, I get it all. The spicy, salty, savory sauce. The crunchy, tangy, and slightly sweet Asian-style slaw. The creamy avocado. It’s all there. Get in my belly!

Slow cooker + Boneless chicken breasts. + House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy™ Sauce. Done.
Let’s talk about this House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy™ Sauce. It’s spicy. It’s savory. And it’s full of aromatic flavors like onion, ginger, and garlic. YES to all of that goodness right there.
Have you seen the full line of House of Tsang products at your local grocery story? I love that they are making Asian-inspired meals easy and approachable. Because, if I’m being totally honest, I’m always a bit intimidated when making Asian food at home. Whenever I try to make sauces from scratch, it take a whole lot of work and the result is kinda lackluster. But House of Tsang… they make it SO easy, and I love it.
I’m super excited to try their General Tso Sauce and Korean Teriyaki Sauce as well. I would love to try their Bangkok Peanut Sauce as well, but our baby girl has a peanut allergy. So can I live vicariously through you? Do me a favor and try it for me. Tell me all about it. Make me jealous. Go ahead, I can handle it.
