Slow-Cooker Sesame Chicken


Makes 4 Servings

This is my favorite Chinese dish,  but take out is expensive and usually contains msg.   Plus if you are on a gluten free diet like me, you can substitute Braggs Amino Acids for the soy sauce. We usually double the recipe and have leftovers for lunch the next day or freeze for a second meal.



4 chicken breasts, deboned

½ cup diced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup honey

¼ cup ketchup

½ cup soy sauce or Braggs Amino Acids

2 TBSP olive oil

¼ teaspoon pepper flakes

4 teaspoons cornstarch

1/3 cup water

3 scallions

1 TBSP sesame seeds



Put chicken breasts in crock pot and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Using a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine onion, garlic, ketchup, honey, soy sauce, oil, and pepper flakes. Blend and pour over chicken. Cover crock pot and cook on low for 4 hours. Lift chicken from the pot and place on board to shred into bite-sized pieces. Cover to keep warm. Using a small bowl, add cornstarch together with 1/3 cup water and stir. Add to sauce in the crock pot and allow to cook for 15 minutes, or until sauce begins to thicken. Serve sauce over cooked rice, adding chicken on top. Sprinkle with scallions and sesame seeds.
