Honey Sesame Chicken in the Slow Cooker

I love nothing more than chucking meat in the slow cooker, dump in some sauce and come home to an awesome meal. 

Here's the problem.

I. Can't. Make. Rice.

I follow the directions but it just never turns out. It's either mushy, undercooked or completely dry and stuck to the pan.  This time it was undercooked AND mushy.  I'm talented, aren't I. 

So - Hubs stopped at the nearest chinese place and picked up some fried rice.  It added to the calories quite a bit but was really good.  Some day I'll quit being cheap and actually buy a rice cooker. 

Honey Sesame Chicken Recipe
Adapted from Very Culinary

1 1/2 - 2 lbs. chicken
Salt and pepper
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup ketchup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water
Sesame seeds and scallions for garnish

Lightly season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper; put into crockpot. 

In a medium bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, garlic and pepper flakes.  Pour over chicken.  Cook for low for 5 - 7 hours.

Remove chicken from the crockpot, leave sauce.  Dissolve the cornstarch in water and pour into crock pot.  Stir to combine with sauce. Shred chicken and add to sauce.  OR you can just shred to chicken and serve with sauce drizzled over it.  I loved the sauce so I mixed it all together.
