Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

salt & pepper

6 green onions

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup ketchup

1/2 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons sesame oil (sub olive oil if you don’t have sesame oil)

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

4 tsp cornstarch

1/3 cup water

sesame seeds

1. Spray inside of crock pot with cooking spray. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and salt and pepper them, stirring to cover each piece evenly. Place into bottom of slow cooker.

2. Cut off white off green onions: dice the white part, and set aside the green part for later. Combine onion whites, garlic, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, oil and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Stir well. Pour over chicken. Cook on low two hours, or high for one.

3. When crock pot is nearly done: In a small bowl dissolve the cornstarch into the water. Add to crock pot and stir in well. If you’ve been cooking on low then turn heat up to high. Cover and allow to cook another 15 to 20 minutes, or until sauce begins to thicken some. OR: pour chicken/sauce into a pan and add water/cornstarch mixture to it. Simmer on medium-low until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes.

4. Spoon chicken over rice or noodles and top with sesame seeds and diced green parts of onion.
