Sesame Chicken In The Crockpot

I’m so excited about this recipe. Why?  ALL 3 of my kids ate it and loved it.  That does not happen very often.   Not only do they all love it, but the sauce is AWESOME and tasted great over rice and vegetables, so I can eat plant based along with my family!  The last reason why I love it is that it cooks in the crockpot.  So easy!  

Sesame Chicken In The Crockpot
from Six Sisters’ Stuff via Baby Center

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thighs would be fine too)
Salt and pepper
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (could also use olive oil or coconut oil)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional – doesn’t really add heat, just adds more flavor)
4 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 Tablespoons water
Sesame seeds (I was out of sesame seeds

Season both sides of chicken with lightly with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours, or just until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from crock pot, leave sauce. Dissolve 4 teaspoons of cornstarch in 6 tablespoons of water and pour into crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Replace lid and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes or until slightly thickened. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice or noodles.

    I thought this was pretty good. I felt like a half cup was too much soy sauce. I will make this again for sure.

    I made the same recipe last night! I had company over and they loved it too. I steamed some broccoli and mixed it in before serving which I think made it even better!
