Crock Pot Sesame Chicken




I just love the feeling of a Saturday that stretches before you will no plans on the calendar to worry about. A day to spend at home if you wish, catching up on all the little things that need to be done or maybe even just losing yourself in a good book. Also, a perfect day for putting something in the crock pot and letting it cook while you relax.

I came up with this recipe by using a little of this and a little of that; all ingredients that I had on hand. The flavor after cooking all afternoon was really delicious and this recipe will go in my crock pot rotation. One of my tricks for making crock pot meals a little more special, is to add a fresh ingredient at the end. I especially like to use celery in an Asian flavored dish like this, because it adds both a brightness and a great crunch. Served with brown rice and oven roasted carrots this was a colorful and tasty Saturday night dinner.


Crock Pot Sesame Chicken

I 1/2 pounds chicken, sliced

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup brown sugar

4 minced garlic cloves

3 T sesame seeds

1 cup chopped celery, divided

3 T corn starch

Place chicken in crock pot. Put sesame seeds and 1/2 cup chopped celery, garlic and brown sugar on top of chicken pieces. Add chicken broth and soy sauce. Cook on high for 4 hours. At the end of cooking, add the cornstarch ( mix cornstarch with water and shake together to avoid lumps) and let thicken. Serve over brown rice and top with remaining chopped celery. Enjoy!

  1. That sounds good! I'll have to try it, but probably will use Bragg's Liquid Aminos instead of the soy sauce, and then maybe just a tablespoon or so. I'm putting this recipe on my phone meal list. That comes in so handy when I can't think of what to make for dinner! Thanks. :-)
