Here is the yummy dinner we will be having tonight!! I love using my Crock Pot on a hot summer day!

Any excuse to have dinner done without putting a ton of work into it and having to turn the oven on! Wink

I love sticking something in my crock pot in the morning and voilà! By the evening we have a delicious dinner!

INGREDIENTS:

6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 4 chicken breasts

Salt and pepper

1/2 cup diced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup ketchup

1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

4 teaspoons cornstarch

1/3 cup water

2 packets minute rice, optional

1/2 tablespoon (or more) sesame seeds

3 scallions, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

Place chicken in Crock Pot and lightly season both sides with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl, combine onion, garlic, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, oil and red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, or high for 2 hours.

Remove chicken to a cutting board, leaving sauce. Shred chicken into bite-sized pieces; set aside. Prepare rice according to package instructions.

In a small bowl, dissolve 4 teaspoons cornstarch in 1/3 cup water; add to crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Cover and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Add cooked rice to 4 plates, top with chicken and spoon sauce over top. Sprinkle evenly with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.

Serve and enjoy!

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
