Sesame Chicken

If you ever want to get on your friends’ good sides, just make them food. When you have to borrow your friend’s craft room for a few hours, you should at least bring them a free meal.

Besides from that, this meal is easy enough to use for meal prep for the week. Plus, it stays good for a few days in the fridge. Normally this is made in a frying pan, but for convenience, I made this in the crock-pot. For easier cleanup, I always use a crock-pot liner before I start.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Chicken Breast or Thigh
  • 1/2 cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 2 tablespoon Sriracha or 1 tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 teaspoon Ginger, grated
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Water
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups Brown Rice

Directions

  1. In a clean crock-pot, lay the chicken out evenly on the bottom of the crock-pot.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, sriracha/ red pepper flakes, ginger, garlic, sesame seeds, and diced onion.
  3. Pour the sauce on top of the chicken.
  4. Cover and cook for 6 hours on low or 2 ½ hours on high.
  5. Cut a piece of chicken to see if it’s done. If done, remove from the crock-pot and cut into pieces.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the water and cornstarch, stirring until a paste forms.
  7. Add this paste to the crockpot sauce and stir until it thickens. Add the chicken back into the pot and to recoat it into the sauce.
  8. At this time, prepare two cups of brown rice. Fix according to the package and serve with the chicken.
