Trey and I love both love sesame chicken and this version seemed like a great option. The honey added a nice touch of sweetness, although I will have to say that I would add even more honey if I made it a second time. In the recipe below I reduced the amount of soy so that the honey flavor would be more apparent.
I served this chicken over rice, but I'm sure vegetables or noodles would be a great option as well. Enjoy!
Honey Sesame Chicken adapted from Six Sisters' Stuff
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 C honey
1/3 C soy sauce
1/2 C diced onion
1/4 C ketchup
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
4 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 6 Tbsp water
Salt and pepper both sides of chicken.
Combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in bowl. Stir well.
The sauce all ready to go
Lightly grease bottom of slow cooker. Place seasoned chicken into bottom and top with honey mixture. Cook 3-4 hours on low or for 1 1/2- 2 1/2 hours on high, or until chicken is just done.
Remove chicken to spare plate, leaving sauce in slow cooker. Turn slow cooker on high and add cornstarch dissolved in water and stir. Allow to cook for 10 minutes until sauce thickens.
*At this point if you want to serve the honey sesame chicken over rice, you can go ahead and start it.
Return chicken to slow cooker and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
