Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken

Another pinterest recipe! Did I ever mention how wonderful that site is? Love, love, love it! This was easy to throw together. Although it said to cook the chicken breasts whole in the crockpot, I cut them up before I threw them in to make it easier to work with... We also doubled this recipe and it was gone very quickly - we all enjoyed it!

Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken

2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 tablespoons diced onion
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
4 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 tablespoons water
sesame seeds

Season both sides of chicken breast with salt and pepper, add to crockpot. In a small bowl combine honey, soy sauce, diced onion, canola oil, garlic and red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken and cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from crockpot and cut into bite sized pieces. Pour sauce into saucepan and add cornstarch mixture, stir to combine with sauce. Boil until thickened. Return chicken to saucepan to coat with sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
