Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

Gotta love those Pinterest recipes!
I've decided to start trying some of the recipes that I have pinned.
It'll take me all year to go through them all,
and by that time I'm sure I'd have a lot more pinned! 
This recipe looked delicious and it led me to the web site of
Six Sisters Stuff

I've been a fan of theirs for quite some time.
Be sure to take the time to check out their page!

Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thighs would be fine too)
Salt and pepper
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (could also use olive oil or canola oil)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional - doesn't really add heat, just adds more flavor)
4 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 Tablespoons water
Sesame seeds

Season both sides of chicken lightly with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. 
In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. 
Pour over chicken. 

Cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours, 
or just until chicken is cooked through. 
Remove chicken from crock pot, leave sauce. 
Dissolve 4 teaspoons of cornstarch in 6 tablespoons of water and pour into crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. 

Replace lid and cook sauce on high for ten more minutes or until slightly thickened. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving. 

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice or noodles.

I'm thinking that next time I may add some pineapple
when I add the chicken back in.
