Crockpot Sesame Honey Chicken

This is a great, EASY, quick meal with the good ol’ crockpot. Calls for a few ingredients you may or may not have… but the few you may need to get is worth it. Great flavor! Original recipe found here

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sriracha chili hot sauce, or more to taste ( I omitted cause I didn’t have any and didn’t buy any)
  • 1 heaping tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 medium scallions, chopped for garnish

Step One:

Place your chicken in the crockpot and season with black pepper. In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, 1 tbsp water, sesame oil, onion powder and sriracha (if you got it). Pour over chicken and cook on LOW 3-4 hours.

Step Two:

Remove chicken, leaving the sauce in the slow cooker. Shred chicken with two forks and set aside.

Step Three:

In a small bowl, dissolve your tiny bit of cornstarch in remaining 1/4 cup water; add it to the crockpot and stir to combine. Cover and cook on HIGH on its own until slightly thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes; then return your shredded chicken to the crockpot and mix well.

Step Four:

Serve chicken and sauce over rice and top with sesame seeds and chopped scallions for garnish! Super good. Sweet, salty and the scallions added a nice flavor to to top it off. Second time I’ve made this and there will def be a third.
