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