Crock Pot Sesame Chicken FTW!

Want to know the best part about owning a crockpot AKA slow cooker? They are seasonal year-round! You heard me, I keep mine out all year because I love it so much! By the way, this slow cooker is very similar to the one I have and currently sells for under $50 on Amazon!

This delicious Crockpot Sesame Chicken Recipe dates back to 2013 and we decided to reinvent it by tweaking the recipe and retaking the photos! It’s still as good as the first time we made it, but much more beautiful.

The bowl helps because guess what? I made it in pottery 🙂 I say WE because Linley was actually with me when I made this recipe AND I believe the old photos are the first time her hands made an appearance in a FFF photo. #TBT Gah, I’m going to get all emotional. Okay, so here’s what you need to make this Crockpot Sesame Chicken Recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast

  • 1/4 cup organic ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
