Here's a particularly delicious meal: Honey Sesame Chicken. I found the recipe here but I left out the ketchup because I really don't see why it was included in the first place. This is supposed to be an Asian dish, so why would there be ketchup in it? In my opinion, the recipe is delicious without it. Also, I used chicken breasts instead of thighs.
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup of honey
- ½ cup of soy sauce
- 2 tbsp. oil
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 1 red onion
- 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
- 1-2 tablespoons corn starch
- Sesame seeds, toasted (these can be found in the spice asle)
- Place the chicken breasts in the crockpot insert and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.
- In a medium sized bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, oil, garlic powder, onion, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine well. Pour over the chicken in the crockpot.
- Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1½-2½ hours.
- When done, remove chicken from stock pot and cut into chunks. Prior to putting the chicken back in the stockpot, combine some cornstarch in water and whisk it into the crockpot to thicken up the sauce a bit. Throw the chicken back in and stir around to recoat the chicken in the sauce.
- Serve hot over a bed of white rice (optional) and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top
