Looking for an easy dinner? This has you covered. I made this for our Sunday dinner last week and we really enjoyed it. And I loved how easy it was to make. You even cook the sauce right in the crock-pot. Less dishes to do = a happy mama 🙂
Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I use frozen)
- ½-1 cup honey*
- ½ cup soy sauce
- 1 cup diced onion
- ¼ cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
- ⅓ cup water
- Sesame seeds
- Combine the honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic, pepper flakes & pepper in the slow cooker. Add the chicken and stir to cover them with the sauce.
- Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours or until the chicken is cooked.
- Remove the chicken from slow cooker, leaving sauce in the insert. Turn the heat to high on slow cooker.
- Whisk the cornstarch into water and pour into slow cooker. Whisk to combine with sauce. Replace lid and cook sauce on high 10 more minutes or until slightly thickened.
- Shred the chicken, return to the pot and toss with sauce before serving. Sprinkle with sesame seeds & sliced green onions (if desired) and serve over rice.
*I used ½ cup honey like A Bountiful Kitchen, but you can use up to 1 cup if you like your asian dishes on the sweeter side.
