  • 5 - 3 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken (Thighs are the best)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 cup honey
  • ½ cup of Soy Sauce
  • 3 tbl spoons Oyster Sauce
  • 2 tbl spoons Sesame Oil
  • 4 tbl spoons Ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp Red Pepper Flakes (Optional also feel free to increase for more of a kick. I used 3 tsp)
  • 4 tbl spoons of diced onion (Feel free to add more)
  • Sesame Seeds
  • 5 tbl spoons cornstarch & 6 tbl spoons of water.

Instructions

  1. Spray slow cooker with cooking spray
  2. Season both sides of chicken with lightly salt & pepper (or preferred rub) and place in bottom of slow cooker. Toss in the diced onion. Turn cooker on low.
  3. In a bowl, add honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, oyster sauce, pepper flakes. Stir until well combined. Pour over the chicken in the slow cooker and cover.
  4. Cover & Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Start monitoring the chicken at the 2 ½ hour mark. Make sure not to overcook chicken. Should be 160-165 degrees.
  5. Once chicken temperature is reached, immediately remove and set aside. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl mixed/dissolve the cornstarch & water. Then put in crock pot to thicken sauce. Put lid back on and turn crock pot on high.
  7. Cut up chicken in bite size pieces place in bowl and sprinkle sesame seeds in and mix. I tend to put a lot in mine preferably.
  8. Cook up sticky white rice. I have a rice cooker, but any method works.
  9. After rice is completed, turn off crock pot, put chicken bites in crock pot, wait 5 minutes.
  10. Serve Honey glazed sesame chicken over sticky white rice and enjoy !
