Crock-Pot Sweet Honey Sesame Chicken

  No comments    

Honey Sesame Chicken Can you tell I’ve been making a lot of crock-pot meals lately? Sometimes they’re the only way I know dinner will be ready on time for our family!

In a crock-pot mix water, honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, sesame seeds, and a couple splashes of sesame oil. The amount of each will depend on how much chicken you make. I filled my crock-pot up with chicken when I made this so I could have leftovers for the week. Go easy on the red pepper flakes as they’ll definitely add in some spice, and also go easy on the soy sauce… a little goes a long way. I don’t feel like you could have too much honey in this!

Mix together and add chicken breasts. Cook on high for 2-4 hours or low 4-6 hours. Once the chicken is cooked, about 20 minutes before you’re going to serve it, remove chicken from crock-pot but keep it on warm. Mix 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch in a bowl with a cup of water. Add this mixture to the sauce in the crock pot and whisk until incorporated. Return chicken and warm until it’s time to eat. This makes the sauce thick and like a glaze.

Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with fried rice or plain brown rice! This chicken is so sweet and juicy. The sweet honey mixed with the small amount of spice from the red pepper flakes tastes so good together. We also agreed this would be great chicken for a homemade yakisoba with noodles and stir-fried veggies. Enjoy!
