Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Spread chicken into the crock of a slow cooker.
  2. Stir honey, soy sauce, ketchup, minced onion, vegetable oil, and garlic powder together in a bowl; pour over the chicken.
  3. Cook on Low until the chicken is tender, 3 to 4 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from the sauce in the slow cooker to a cutting board. Stir water and cornstarch together to dissolve cornstarch completely; pour into the sauce in the slow cooker until smooth.
  5. Cook on High until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
  6. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and stir into the sauce. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the chicken and sauce mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also cook the chicken in sauce on High for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, if you want it finished sooner.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
