As I’m sitting here writing and enjoying my leftover Egg Casserole from dinner last night, I thought I would take a minute to write out the recipe for tonight’s dinner. Tonight we are having Honey Sesame Chicken. I can either make it in the crock pot or in the over. I’m opting for the oven so it will be crisper. We are having Crock Pot Rice with the chicken. I froze my leftovers from last time, so I only needed to pull it from the freezer and thaw out. Chinese food is the best!!
Here’s the recipe:
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup onions, diced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/8 cup sesame seed
In a medium-sized bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine well. Pour over the chicken in the crock pot.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours.
When done, remove chicken from stock pot and cut into chunks. Prior to putting the chicken back in the stockpot, combine some cornstarch in water and whisk it into the crock pot to thicken up the sauce a bit. Throw the chicken back in and stir around to re-coat the chicken in the sauce.
Serve hot over a bed of white rice(optional) and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.Enjoy your day!
