Posted on

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?

Ingredients

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.

About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
