Simple Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

July 8, 2012 2 Comments | Disclosure

Because it’s sweltering hot outside, I have no desire to use my oven or even my stove top! But I still want to prepare a homemade healthy meal for my family. Jenn to the rescue! We had this crock-pot chicken meal last week and LOVED it! Kid & husband approved!

Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup honey
2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1/2 onion, diced
2 1/2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp safflower oil or extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced, pressed or grated
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp sesame seeds (I did not add these!)
Put chicken into crock pot. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken and mix,
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 the slow cooker leaving the sauce.  Whisk the  cornstarch into liquid in the crock pot, cover and cook the sauce on high for ten more minutes or until it just starts to thicken.

Shred chicken or cut into bite size pieces, return to the sauce and stir together.  Serve over rice and with your favorite green vegetable.

Thanks for the recipe & photo A Cook’s Quest!

    I just got back from a family reunion yesterday and haven’t had time to go shopping yet. The only green veggie I have in the house is frozen spinach. Do you think that would be weird with this? If not, how much do you think I should use? Should I just warm it in the microwave and then mix it with the rice? I’m reaching to add a little healthiness here. I also have canned peas and green beans.

    So bummed I don’t have any frozen broccoli (can you freeze fresh broccoli, btw?)!
