Ok so I am kind of funny when it comes to food and don’t care for many all-in-one crock pot meals. This one however looked good so I had to try it. To my surprise and excitement it was a great one! Rice is a must with this one its great with the sauce and next time I will serve with steamed broccoli. The recipe came from http://www.thecomfortofcooking.com/2012/08/crock-pot-honey-sesame-chicken.html found it through pinterest and glad I did it was something different and my 9-year-old requested it again soon. Oh the best part was I had everything on hand and how often does that happen?
4-5 frozen chicken breasts
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
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (could add more it was not spicy at all)
4 teaspoons cornstarch (optional step)
1/3 cup water
rice made the way you like it
1/2-1 tablespoon sesame seeds
4 green onion ends chopped
Firts combine onion, garlic, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, oil and red pepper flakes. Then pour over chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours depending on the size of chicken. 4 hours for fresh
Remove chicken leaving sauce in crock pot and shred
In a small bowl, dissolve 4 teaspoons cornstarch in 1/3 cup water (although not sure this step is needed I might skip next time). Add to crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Cover and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes, or until slightly thickened.
You can either add chicken back to the sauce (as I did) or spoon over the finished plate.
Place chicken on top of prepared rice and top with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.
Enjoy it taste great and smelled wonderful
