Fake Out Take Out - Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken

50

A love of mine is Chinese take out! I mean who doesn't love Chinese take out?? hello? I swear to you this tasted just like something we'd order in on a Friday night from the place down the street. So yummy. And the best part (okay the whole thing is the best part) is that even though it's in a slow cooker it doesn't get that weird mushy quality to the chicken because I have used thighs instead of breasts!

6
6 boneless skinless thighs

1 small onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, diced

1 T freshly grated ginger

1 C honey (I had planned on using regular honey but ran low so used 1/2 C orange blossom honey and I think it added a little something extra so use what you have)

1/4 C ketchup

1/2 C soy sauce

2 T olive oil

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp if you like it SPICY.

4 tsp cornstarch

1/3 C water

1 T sesame seeds

2 Cups cooked rice.
Whisk together onion, garlic, ginger, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, oil and red pepper flakes. Place chicken in slow cooker and cover with sauce mixture. Cook on low 4 hours. Remove chicken and shred....
