Directions

  • Stir honey, soy sauce, ketchup, minced onion, vegetable oil, and garlic powder together in a bowl; pour over the chicken.

  • Cook on Low until the chicken is tender, 3 to 4 hours.

  • 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.

  • Cook on High until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.

  • Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and stir into the sauce. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the chicken and sauce mixture.

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.

This was very easy to throw together and delicious. Followed the recipe except for adding minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I also coated my chicken pieces in the cornstarch then poured the sauce mixture on top. This method allows the sauce to thicken as it cooks so there is no need to remove the chicken and then thicken the sauce it works perfectly. Read More

This was not a favorite for our family. At the end of the cooking time I tasted the sauce and it was...sweet. But nothing else. There was no depth of flavor nothing interesting and it was not delicious. Also the chicken tasted dry. Read More

This recipe should be outlawed in every kitchen. OMG I drank the leftover juices from the crock pot like it was soup. The second time I made it I added vegetables to it the possibilities of this recipe are endless. Thank you so much. Read More

This was a nice dish. I did cut back on the honey by half and it was fine for me.. personal preference. I dont have dried onions so I used some fresh. Added red peppers and broccoli to finished dish. One thing thickening the sauce in the crockpot didnt work.. never thickened for me so I did this on stovetop Read More

I read the reviews and made some adjustments. We're not into "sweet" these days so I cut the honey in half (personal taste preference). I cooked on low checked the crockpot at 2 hours the chicken was cooked and tender so I removed it from the crockpot and proceeded with thickening the sauce. The sauce was not thickened after 20 minutes so I added a bit more cornstarch and finished it on the stovetop. I also added a little crushed red pepper flakes and a good squeeze of Sriracha sauce to kick up the heat just a bit. Finally quickly sautéed some veggies and stirred in at the end. I'm not a huge fan of crock pot cooking but this turned out pretty well it certainly is easy and keeps me out of the kitchen on this hot summer day. Read More

A definite keeper!!!! Very easy to do and had all the ingredients at home! Followed the recipe pretty much as as written (changes were--- a little extra onion flakes garlic powder and little less soy sauce). Husband 21 year old son and myself loved it!!! None of us thought it was too sweet; as an onion lover I think I'll put a bit more onion in next time. Chicken cooked in 3 hours in my crock pot; sauce thickened up in about 5 minutes. Read More

We liked this! For the sauce I did 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup 2 tbls soy sauce 1/4 cup ketchup & 1 tsp garlic powder. I used fresh diced onion and diced chicken breast. Cooked sauce onion & chicken on high for 40 min then added 1 1/2 lb frozen broccoli for about 30 min and served over hot cooked white rice. The sauce was a little thin so next time I will thicken it but This ones a keeper!?? Read More

This was very easy to put together and my kids devoured it but for my husband and myself it was only ok. In my opinion it was too sweet. I did sub fresh onion for dried minced onion. Cooking time will vary depending on your slow cooker. Personally mine cooks hot and was done faster than the 3-4 hours on low. I had no issues with the sauce thickening in the crockpot. Read More

I love this recipe! I did find it a little too bland the first time that I made it so I added less than a scant tablespoon of Chinese chili paste to it at the end when I added the cornstarch and water. It really kicked it up a notch and now it's perfect! It's now a "go-to" comfort food in my house. Going to make it again tomorrow. Read More
