Slow Cooker Shredded Sesame Chicken

Ever since we did our remodel in our kitchen, I’ve fallen IN LOVE with my slow cooker!  Now I just look forward to all the many recipes I can play with, with this neat little kitchen gadget 😛  Plus, I’m a busy mom, and simple eating is a necessity.  Simple, fast, easy, AND healthy. This slow cooker shredded sesame chicken was a HUGE hit in my house!!


  1. 3 organic, boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. 1 cup honey
  4. 1/2 cup Braggs liquid aminos
  5. 1/2 cup diced white onion
  6. 1/4 cup ketchup
  7. 2 Tbsp olive oil
  8. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  9. 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  10. 2 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 3 Tbsp water
  11. Sesame seeds


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken lightly with salt and pepper, and place in slow cooker
  2. In a bowl, combine honey, Braggs, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic, and pepper flakes.
  3. Pour over chicken.
  4. Cook on LOW for 4 hours, or on HIGH for 2 hours, or just until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Remove chicken from slow cooker with a slotted spoon, leaving sauce behind.
  6. Dissolve 2 tsp of cornstarch in 3 Tbsp water and pour into slow cooker.  Stir to combine with sauce.  Replace lid and cook sauce on HIGH for 10 more minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  7. Shred chicken with 2 forks and then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving.
  8. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice, quinoa, noodles, or salad.

Store in a tupperware for a couple nights making healthy dinners easy, as well as spend less time in the kitchen.  Meal planning for the win!
