Honey Sesame Chicken

Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken Recipe

Yum! This is very tasty and so easy to make. Plus another Crock Pot meal!!!!

This was adapted from the Comfort of Cooking. 


6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 4 chicken breasts (about 2 pounds) 
Salt and pepper 
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup honey 
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce 
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil 
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/3 cup water 
brown rice, 4 cups cooked
1/2 tablespoon (or more) sesame seeds (I didn't have any so I left these out)
3 scallions, chopped


Spray Crock Pot with cooking spray.

Place chicken in Crock Pot and lightly season both sides with salt and pepper.

In a medium 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 to a cutting board, leaving sauce. Shred chicken into bite-sized pieces; set aside. Prepare rice according to package instructions.

In a small bowl, dissolve 4 teaspoons cornstarch in 1/3 cup water; add to crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Cover and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Place chicken and sauce over cooked rice. Sprinkle evenly with sesame seeds.
