Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken

Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken Recipe

 

Last week I was hunting through my crock pot recipes and came across Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken. We eat a lot of Asian food in our house and I figured this one would be a winner. Instead of serving it with rice I just served broccoli on the side to cut down on carbs and my family really enjoyed it. I, however thought the vinegar in it was a little too overbearing and next time won’t make it with as much vinegar. So here’s the altered version for you.

How to make it into a Freezer Meal

  1. In one ziptight bag place the chicken and one cup of whole wheat flour. Shake to coat.
  2. Remove the chicken and place in a freezer bag. Throw out the rest of the flour.
  3. In another place all the sauce ingredients.
  4. Label the bags.
  5. On cooking day, thaw the ingredients out the night before. Add the chicken to the bottom of the crockpot and then pour on sauce.
  6. Cover with around 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water.
  7. Cook on low 4-6 hours or high 2-3.

So you forgot to defrost?

Confession: the day I was making this I forgot to defrost! So I threw frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot and added the sauce on top.
After 5 hours on low I removed the breasts and cut into cubes. I stirred the sauce and let cook for a further 1 hour.
