Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken

This couldn't have been an easier dinner to make. I've never cooked with chicken thighs before since I'm not a huge fan of dark meat but I really wanted to stick to the original recipe. (Normally I would sub chicken breasts for thighs) I'm so glad I did. It tasted just like the sesame chicken you would get at a Chinese restaurant. Yummy!

Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken
Source-Table for Two

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, about 5
Salt and pepper
1 cup of honey
1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
Sesame seeds

Place the chicken thighs in the crockpot insert and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.
In a medium sized bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine well. Pour over the chicken in the crockpot.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours.
When done, remove chicken from crock pot and cut into chunks. Prior to putting the chicken back in the crockpot, combine some cornstarch in water and whisk it into the crockpot to thicken up the sauce a bit. Put the chicken back in and stir around to recoat the chicken in the sauce.
Serve hot over a bed of white rice (optional) and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
