Need a quick, simple, and delicious slow cooker meal? This Asian-inspired Honey Sesame Chicken recipe fits the bill! The chicken is simmered in a sweet, tangy, garlic sauce and is moist and tender.

I don’t use my crockpot near enough and when I do, it’s usually for the same old recipes.  I had everything on hand for this sesame chicken recipe that a friend shared with me.  I had it shoved into a cookbook and apparently never made it so it was time to rectify that mistake!  Add some rice and roasted cauliflower and broccoli and it was a meal!
