Honey Sesame Chicken in the Crock Pot - The First Year Blog #HoneySesameChicken #CrockPot

I never thought I would be that into a kitchen appliance, but I love using my crock pot!

Ingredients
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or thighs)
salt and pepper
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
sesame seeds
3 scallions, chopped (optional)

Lightly season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, and place into your crock pot.

In a medium bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour mixture over chicken. Cook on low for 4 hours.

Remove chicken from crock pot and shred.Once the chicken is shredded, return to the crock pot for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Serve chicken over cooked quinoa or rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped scallions. I also served this with edamame, yum!
