the baker upstairs: slow cooker honey sesame chicken

slow cooker honey sesame chicken

Yum

I saw this recipe on my friend Alyssa's blog a few weeks ago, and thought it looked super yummy! I happened to find a great deal on chicken thighs ($1.49/pound is pretty awesome!) and decided to try it out. I am loving the slow cooker lately, especially since the weather has cooled so much lately (I even saw little snow flurries this morning!). It smelled delicious while it was cooking, and the sauce was fantastic. I only wish that I had used chicken breasts instead of thighs for it. I don't know what it is, but I'm still kind of learning to like chicken thighs. If you love them, then definitely make this with them! It was still really tasty, but I think I would have liked it with chicken breast even better.
Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken
The Recipe Critic

1 pound boneless chicken thighs
1 cup honey
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
cornstarch
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
sesame seeds

Insert chicken into the crockpot and sprinkle salt and pepper on each side. In medium sized bowl combine ketchup, honey, soy sauce, ketchup, vegetable oil, garlic, diced onion, and red pepper flakes.  Pour over the chicken in crock pot. Cook on low 3-4 hours or high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

When done, remove chicken and cut it into chucks.  Before returning chicken to crockpot, combine cornstarch in some water and whisk it into the crockpot to thicken it up a bit.  Throw the chicken back into the crockpot to re-coat with sauce. Serve over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
