So, this Crock Pot recipe is awesome. I guess it’s tough to go wrong with an entire cup of honey. I recently learned that honey has a ton of random health benefits. For one, it provides a lot of instant energy so it is recommended right before exercise to increase performance. Honey also has been tied to cancer and heart disease prevention and reductions in ulcers and gastrointestinal issues. So there you go – eat honey and be happy and healthy.
This also really does taste similar to take out chicken only it’s not fried so it’s better for you. Win-win.
- 2 lbs of chicken breast
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup of onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup of honey (note: that’s nearly like a whole 12 oz container)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1/4 tablespoon of red pepper flakes
- 4 teaspoons of corn starch
- 1/3 cup of water
- 1/2 tablespoon of sesame seeds
- 3 green onions, chopped
What to do:
Put the chicken at the bottom of the Crock Pot, as per usual, and lightly salt and pepper both sides. In a separate bowl, combine the onion, garlic, honey, soy sauce, vegetable oil and red pepper flakes. Pour over the chicken. Cook for four hours on low. After four hours, pull the chicken out of the Crock Pot and cut it into smaller pieces. Set aside. Stir together the corn starch and water in a separate bowl and pour into the Crock Pot and cook the sauce for another 15 minutes on low. Add the chicken back into the sauce. Add sesame seeds and green onions on the top. Serve over rice – ta-da!
This is awesome! The honey is perfect with the onion and garlic. I love this so much. It’s like takeout, but not fried!
