Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken (Crock Pot Recipe)

This Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken couldn’t be any easier to make! I love that it only takes a couple hours and I can just throw all the ingredients in the crockpot without a lot of work.

Step 1: Lightly spray bottom of crockpot/slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray or line with one of these amazing disposable liners. (I love using these for easy clean-up!)

Step 2: Dice boneless, skinless chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Add to the crockpot and lightly season with salt and pepper.

Step 3: In a small bowl combine honey, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes. Whisk together until mixed well.

Step 4: Carefully pour mixture over chicken in crockpot and cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high for 1 ½ hours- 2 ½ hours.

Step 5: Once chicken is fully cooked, remove chicken from crockpot and carefully pour sauce into a sauce pan. Add cornstarch to the sauce and bring to a boil, stirring constantly with a whisk until sauce thickens. (About 5-10 minutes)

Step 6: Re-combine chicken and sauce and stir well. Serve chicken over white rice and add sesame seeds and diced scallions to taste.
