Happy Tuesday! Time for a little dinner inspiration people – Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken! My cousin was coming to visit one weekend several weeks ago. I knew I had some delicious looking recipes on my pinterest account I was dying to try. I cut down the amount of chicken to just two really large breasts and it was enough to feed 3 of us.
Can I just tell you how much I love my Crockpot? It is God’s gift to all cooks. Throw the food in that morning and TA DA, dinner is ready when you get home! This Honey Sesame Chicken was so good and so easy that I had to share it with you! Enjoy!
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thighs would be fine too)
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons diced onion
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 Tablespoons water
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.
