Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken


Okay school has started and life seems to be speeding up again {just make sure you’re not speed through those school zones – time to get use to those again}.  Crock Pots make dinner so easy on busy days.   I love this Honey Sesame Chicken not only because it tastes yummy, but it is so easy to make.  I was a little afraid that this one might be too sweet, but the little kick from the crushed red peppers and the green onions on top balance it all out and make for a delicious dinner.  We love it on noodles, but you could serve it with rice also.


Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken


4 large chicken breasts or 6-8 boneless, skinless  thighs  (about 2 lbs total)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup honey
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds (more to taste)
3 green onions, chopped


Put chicken in crock pot.  Season with salt and pepper.  In a bowl combine onion, garlic, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, oil and red pepper flakes.  Pour over chicken.  Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 2 hours.

Remove chicken and shred.  In a small bowl combine cornstarch and water.  Pour sauce in crock pot into a sauce pan and add in the cornstarch mixture.  Stir to combine over medium heat.  Cook for about 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring often.  You can add the shredded chicken to the sauce, but I like to just serve the chicken on the noodles (or rice) and then spoon the sauce over it so I don’t get too much.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions.
