Easy crockpot recipe

Since I have started back to work, I am always looking for easy recipes that I can prepare early and just cook it later. Of course I went to pinterest to find some. There were tons.
Well I though I share this one because it is so good. My very picky children loved it and we had just a little left over.

2.5 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thighs would be fine too)

Salt and pepper

1 cup honey

1/2 cup soy sauce

4 tablespoons diced onion

4 tablespoons ketchup

2 tablespoon 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 with lightly with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken.

Cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours, or just until chicken is cooked through.

Remove chicken from crock pot, leave sauce. Dissolve 4 teaspoons of cornstarch in 6 tablespoons of water and pour into crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce.

Replace lid and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes or until slightly thickened.

Cut chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice or noodles.

THe recipe that I found on Pinterest doubled it and this was is the doubled recipe. It is so easy and soooo good. I would highly recommend it.   Enjoy!
