My family loved this dish. I modified it only by using sesame oil, as I think it gives more of a sesame flavor to it.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thighs would be fine too)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp sesame oil (could also use olive oil or canola oil, but sesame gives more flavor)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional - doesn't really add heat, just adds more flavor)
4 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 Tablespoons water
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.
*You can also sprinkle more red pepper flakes on top if you want more heat.
