What's clean, yummy, healthy, and brown all over?! Your dinner tonight!

Clean Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken!

I made this recipe last night and I absolutely fell in love! My entire house smelled like it. Plus, the best part is that I made it at Noon and it was ready for us that night. I heart the crockpot!

*Clean Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup light soy sauce
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup reduced sugar ketchup
2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes -- kids don't even notice it
4tsp cornstarch dissolved in 6tbsp water
Sesame seeds (I did not add these in and it tasted fine without them)

Put chicken in crockpot. In a small bowl combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3-4 hours or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from pot but leave sauce. Dissolve cornstarch in water and pour in crockpot. Cook on low about 10 more min until thickened. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and return to sauce till heated back through. Serve over rice or noodles. You can add a small bag of oriental style veggies to the sauce (peppers, broccoli, etc) to bulk the meal up or serve over brown rice, broccoli, or noodles. 

Bon Appetit!
