Crock Pot Sesame Chicken

  • sesamechix
  • This looked super tasty, and since we like Chinese Food at our house, we just had to give it a try.  It was fantastic, with or without the sauce.  It was super moist, not too sweet, and full of flavor.  The kids enjoyed it too.  We will be making this dish again for sure!!

Serves 4-6 for less than $1.00/serving

  • 3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast (I used thighs)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • sesame seeds, for garnish
  • cooked quinoa or rice, for serving
  • steamed broccoli, for serving

In a medium bowl, stir the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes together.

Place the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker so that they do not overlap, and pour the sauce over top.  Place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on low for 4-5 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

Once done cooking, remove the chicken to a plate and cut into pieces (or shred with two forks – you decide).  Transfer to a large serving bowl.

Stir the cornstarch and 1/4 cup water together.  Transfer the liquid from the crock pot to a medium saucepan, and whisk in the cornstarch liquid.  Bring the liquid to a boil over medium high heat, cooking until it thickens.
Pour the thickened sauce over the chicken, stirring to coat evenly (or you can choose to pour the sauce over each dish individually to control the amount of sauce).  Garnish with sesame seeds.
Serve with cooked quinoa or rice and steamed broccoli (or any other veggie).   We had some Chinese Rice and store bought egg rolls with ours, so we didn’t put it over rice and broccoli, though I bet it would be good like that too.
