Ingredients
  • 2 - 2.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ¾ cup honey
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic (appx 2 cloves?)
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water
  • Hot cooked white rice (I made 8 cups for my family)
  • Fresh Steamed Broccoli
  • Sesame Seeds for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker in a single layer.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic and pepper.
  3. Pour the liquid over the chicken, cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours (until chicken is cooked through and tender).
  4. Remove the chicken from the crock pot and dice it, then pour the liquid/sauce into a boiler. Bring to a boil. While it's heating, in a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch and cold water.
  5. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the boiling sauce and reduce to a simmer. Let it cook and thicken for 2-3 minutes, then add the chicken in and stir to coat it (I actually pour it all back into the crock pot!).
  6. Serve over hot rice with steamed broccoli and sprinkle with sesame seeds if you like!
