Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken will become a family favourite. It’s so easy to make, contains healthy ingredients, and is absolutely delicious.
I have to admit, I haven’t been a huge fan of the slow cooker. While I absolutely love the idea of it, I haven’t had much success with it. However, last year I bought a new slow cooker at Costco, and I must say, it’s made a big difference. This new slow cooker has a timer, so that when the meat is done cooking, it switches from being on either “Low” or “High” to “Warm.” This has made a big difference in my meals I’ve made in the slow cooker. The meat doesn’t dry out! Also, I’ve had to adjust the cooking times to half of what the original recipe says. Most slow cooker recipes say to cook on low for 8 hours, but that dries out the meat completely if I cook it that long. I find if I cut the time in half, then I end up with tender meat. Now that I’ve figured this out, I plan on using my slow cooker a lot more!
I wanted to use the slow cooker this week because it was so hot outside, and I didn’t want to turn on my oven. I found this delicious looking recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken online and knew I had to try it.
The original recipe calls for chicken breast, but I find if I add lean meat to my slow cooker, it dries out quickly. So I decided to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead, and it turned out super moist! I also cut down on the amount of honey I used. It still turned out delicious! Even my picky seven year old said, “This meal is fantastic!!” If I can get him to say that, I know the recipe is a keeper!
