 I’ve got another family favorite dinner recipe for you today. This one is so crazy delicious and the leftovers tastes just as good the next day. It only takes a few minutes to cut the chicken, mix up the sauce and then dump it all in the slow cooker. I have to say that those are my favorite dinners. The ones that come together quickly, cook by themselves, and then it’s all ready when dinnertime comes.

 This is not one of those slow cooker recipes that you can leave in the crock pot all day while you are away or at work, or where ever it may be. The chicken is coated in cornstarch, so while the chicken is cooking it tends to stick to the edges of the crock pot because the cornstarch acts as a thickener. I ended up having to stir it all together at least 3-4 times during the cook time so that it would not burn.

Just wanted to give y’all a heads up so that no one comes home to scalding hot and burnt to the edges dinner. That would just be a bummer!

 The vegetables will get dark while cooking and so if you want to add some color and a bit of texture, throw in some additional shredded carrots before serving. That’s what I did and I loved it.

 Serve over rice and garnish with sesame seeds and/or green onion and you’re done! Sit down with your family and enjoy dinner.

Here is a tip for buying sesame seeds in the grocery store. I always bought the really expensive McCormick $6 a jar sesame seeds. I found them in the Asian aisle of the grocery store, by the soy sauce and other Asian ingredients, and they were only $1 for a big packet of them. So if the ones in the spice aisle are too expensive, go check out the Asian aisle.
