Honey Sesame Chicken

It doesn't get any easier than this, folks.  If you're looking for an easy and delicious dinner, this is the dish for you!  Serve it with rice and a vegetable and you're all set.

Note: I would suggest keeping the sauce and chicken separate since the sauce has a pretty strong flavor.  Top with the desired amount of sauce and enjoy!

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • sesame seeds
  • green onions, sliced 

In a slow cooker, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and pepper.  Add onions.

Place chicken in slow cooker, turn to cover with sauce.

Cook on low 3 to 4 hours or just until chicken cooks through.

Remove chicken from slow cooker, leaving sauce in ceramic insert.

Turn heat to high on slow cooker.

Whisk cornstarch into water and pour into slow cooker.  Whisk to combine sauce.

Replace lid and cook sauce on high for 10 more minutes or until slightly thickened.

Shred chicken.

Return chicken to pot and toss with sauce.

NOTE: You can also keep the chicken and sauce separate here.  I think I prefer keeping things separate so as to control the sauciness.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and top with chopped green onions.

Serve over rice.

Serves: 4-6
