Asian Sweet Chili Sesame Chicken Recipe
Slow Cooker Asian Sweet Chili Sesame Chicken knocks the socks off of traditional Sesame Chicken with the additional depth of sweet and spicy Asian Sweet Chili Sauce AND  all you have to do is add the ingredients to your slow cooker and dinner is served!



INGREDIENTS
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts (thawed)*
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • sriracha to taste (optional)
  • Sweet Chili Sesame Sauce
  • 2-4 tablespoons Asian sweet chili sauce (I use Mae Ploy)
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons quality hoisin sauce (like Lee Kum Kee or Kikkkoman)***
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder or 3-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder or 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
For Garnishes
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • chopped green onions
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Add chicken to the bottom of your crockpot.
  2. Whisk the Sweet Chili Sesame Sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl. Pour over chicken.
  3. Cook on low for 5-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  4. Shred chicken and add 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water to the crockpot. Stir contents around. Cook on high for 20-30 minutes until sauce thickens. Taste and add Sriracha for spicier, brown sugar for sweeter if desired.
  5. Serve with rice and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
RECIPE NOTES
*You can use frozen chicken breasts but just be aware that they will release more water so you will need to increase the cornstarch in order to thicken the liquid at the end.
**If you don't like heat at all, start with 2 tablespoons Asian Sweet Chili Sauce. You can always add more at the end of cooking.

***Hoisin sauce can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store.
