Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

YUM!  Made this for dinner last week and it was scrumptious!  The recipe comes from “Six Sisters’ Stuff” and was very easy to throw into the crock pot.  I should have doubled the recipe though as it was gone pretty quickly.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs

salt and pepper

1 cup honey

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup diced onion

1/4 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons oil

2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

4 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 tablespoons water

sesame seeds

1  Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper and put in crock pot.  Combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and red pepper flakes and pour over chicken.

2  Cook on low 3 – 4 hours or on high 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours or until chicken is cooked through.

3  Remove chicken from crock pot, leaving sauce.  (I skimmed the yucky chicken stuff out of the sauce before I added the cornstarch/water.)  Dissolve 4 teaspoons cornstarch in 6 tablespoons water and pour into crock pot.  Stir to combine with sauce.  Replace lid and cook on high for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.

4  Cut chicken into bite sized pieces or shred, then return to pot and toss with sauce.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with rice or noodles.

This recipe can also be prepared as a freezer meal – combine all ingredients in a gallon ziploc bag and freeze.  When ready to use, place in fridge and let thaw overnight then following cooking instructions above.

  1. Thank you Penny. Another yummy recipe for the family when they visit this summer. I have a three ring binder of your recipes for summer cooking for the gang. Hope all is well in Utah. Alice

    • Thanks Alice, this is a perfect summertime recipe. Carl asked if we do the cake for his daughter’s wedding which we will if we can so I’m hoping I’ll get to see you and Cliff when you come for the wedding.
