Sesame Chicken

Lately the only way I want to cook is via the crock pot. It's easy, cleanup is easy (says the girl who still has the crock pot bowl soaking in water) and I can throw it all in and do something else while it cooks. Brilliant!
Without further adieu I give you Sesame Chicken
recipe adapted from here
Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs. thawed chicken thighs (you can use breasts as well)
salt & pepper
1 cup honey
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. vegetable oil or olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
4 tsp. cornstarch dissolved in 6 tbsp. of water
1/2 tbsp. sesame seeds
3 scallions, chopped
Lightly season both sides of the chicken with salt & pepper and put into crock pot.
In a medium bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over the chicken and cook on high for four hours.
Remove the chicken from the crock pot, leaving the sauce. Stir to combine with the sauce. Replace the lid and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes or until slightly thickened.
Serve the chicken over brown rice and spoon sauce on top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.

Enjoy!

  4. Looks delish! I don't know if you know this or not, but Reynolds makes crock pot liner bags. They're overpriced, bad for the environment, and totally awesome!!! I hate to admit that I almost always use them...
