Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken

I absolutely love cooking with my crockpot.  Its so nice to just toss everything into the crockpot and go about my day and to come home to nice cooked meal.
I came across this recipe on lots of other blogs and around Pinterest so and I figured since it was so popular that we needed to give it a try.

Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp oil
2 garlic gloves
1/4 tsp red pepper
4 tsp cornstarch
6 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp sesame seeds
2 scallions, optional

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  In the crockpot add the honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and red pepper and stir.  Add the seasoned chicken.  Cook on low for 4-5 hours.  When done remove chicken and shred and set aside.  In a small bowl add the water and cornstarch together and mix, then add to the sauce in the crockpot until thickened.  Either add the chicken back into the sauce or you can drizzle the sauce on top of the chicken.
Serve with rice or noodles.

My Notes:
This recipe was really tasty but I thought it was really salty.  I usually use reduced sodium soy sauce but I was at Costco and bought the wrong kind…dang-it! So I would recommend either using less soy sauce or use the reduced sodium, other then that it was a great meal.
