Honey Sesame Chicken and Broccoli
It is so simple and fun to make your own Chinese takeout at home. This slow cooker honey sesame chicken and broccoli is quick to put together and huge on flavor! Serve with rice for a complete meal.
2 lb Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
4 1/4 Tbsp Corn Starch
2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1/2 cup Water
3 clove Garlic
1/2 cup Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
6 Tbsp Honey
6 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 head Broccoli Florets
2 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
Peel and mince the garlic.
Remove the stalk and cut the broccoli into florets.
First, mix the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast and Cornstarch Corn Starch a bowl so that the chicken gets coated. Then heat Sesame Oil in a large skillet and brown the outside of the chicken evenly for just a couple of minutes. It does not need to be cooked through at this time. Then transfer the chicken to a slow cooker.
Mix the remaining Corn Starch with the Water to create a slurry and pour it into the slow cooker with the chicken. Finally, add the Garlic, Low-Sodium Soy Sauce, Honey and Rice Vinegar. Stir it all together and turn the heat to low. Seal the slow cooker and let it all cook for 3 hours.
When the 3 hours are up, add the Broccoli Florets and the final Corn Starch to thicken it all more. Seal the slow cooker again and let it all cook for another hour to hour and a half.
Stir in the Sesame Seeds at the end just so they get fragrant. Serve it immediately with rice and extra sesame seeds on top for an easy meal that will be even better than your favorite takeout! Enjoy!
