Every time someone compliments me on my cooking, I laugh a little bit to myself. I do love to cook and I consider myself to be pretty good at it, but most of the meals I get compliments on take about 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of work. Making meals every day is hard, and I don’t know too many people who have hours every day to devote to cooking. This crockpot recipe is one of my favorites – it’s ridiculously easy and it can cook while you’re working!
Honey Sesame Chicken Crockpot Recipe
(Serves 2 + Leftovers)
- 2 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup honey
- 1 cup Trader Joe’s island soyaki sauce (It’s worth it to go out and buy this sauce – it’s so delicious! We also use it in our Easy 5-Ingredient Stir Fry.)
- 1 tbsp sesame oil (You can find it in the Asian section of most grocery stores.)
- Salt and Pepper
Add all ingredients to a crockpot and cook it on low for 4-6 hours. (Quick note – this recipe is VERY forgiving! I literally don’t ever measure any of the ingredients; I just add whatever looks right.) One hour before serving, shred the chicken and add it back to the crockpot. (You can also add broccoli to the crockpot at this time if you want – it’s great for picky eaters because it disguises the taste well.) Serve chicken and sauce over rice.
This recipe can also be made ahead of time and frozen (it makes a great gift for an expecting mom)! Just add all the ingredients to a ziplock bag and freeze, then thaw overnight in the fridge. Be sure to write the cooking time and setting on the bag before freezing so you don’t have to look up the recipe later!
I told you it was easy! This recipe is a staple in our house, and I think you’ll enjoy it too! To download the recipe in PDF format, click the button below.
