Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken
You know how when you go out of town for a long weekend, then drive back to your house and then feel like doing absolutely nothing? Yeah, that was me yesterday after we finally got home last night. I wanted to put on jammies, order in, and relax. But nooo, we had to go to the grocery store (which you know I do not enjoy) because we had no food in the house, and worst of all, it was dinner time. Oh Lordy. The grocery store was out of control. We could barely find a place to park. There were people everywhere. And the produce section was wiped clean. Couldn’t get green onion, couldn’t get cilantro, couldn’t get good strawberries. WHY?! It’s like there is really nothing to do in this town except go to the grocery store.
And after a long day at work today, another slow cooker recipe was definitely in order. Hubs loves to order Chinese, but I don’t like to order it very often as it is not the healthiest thing to order. I’ve been wanting to try some new Chinese recipes that I can make at home. I love sesame chicken and I love honey chicken. What better idea than to combine the two?! This version skips the heavy breading and you can tweak the sauce to meet your needs. I used a little honey, low sodium soy sauce, and reduced sugar ketchup. Serve this chicken over rice, quinoa, noodles, and/or veggies!
