Crock-Pot Honey Sesame Chicken

If you are looking for an amazing slow cooker chicken recipe this one is it! My family gave rave reviews on this one and it is totally on our to-make again list. The flavor is amazing and it is pretty easy to put together. The hardest part of this meal is just cutting up the chicken before tossing everything else in the slow cooker!

We served this recipe with some steamed jasmine rice which is my personal favorite rice to serve with Asian inspired dishes and we also steamed up some broccoli and snow peas on the side. I drizzled some of the sauce from the chicken over my rice and veggies and it was good!

As we have mentioned before, chicken can be a tricky beast, especially chicken breasts as there is less fat and connective tissue in boneless skinless chicken breasts than there is in say dark meat like thighs or legs. Often times the chicken comes out dry and blah unless you add in moistness. And this honey sesame sauce does exactly that, the chicken comes out moist and tender and not dried out at all.

Freezer Meal: This recipe can also be made into a freezer meal for convenience sake. Just cut up your chicken, mix up the rest of the ingredients (except for the cornstarch & cold water) and pour over the chicken in a freezer bag. Push out the air, label your bag and freeze.

Freezer Meal Cooking Instructions: Partially thaw freezer meal so that you can easily remove it from the bag and place contents in a 6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 – 7 hours. Pour sauce from chicken into a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer on the stove top. In a cup mix 6 tablespoons cold water and 2 tablespoons corn starch to form a slurry, stir into simmering sauce and cook while stirring until sauce is thickened. Pour sauce over chicken in slow cooker and stir to coat. Server over rice.
