This easy slow cooker sesame chicken is made with simple ingredients and tastes better than takeout. It’s healthy and tastes great with noodles or rice.

In a slow cooker, add the chicken pieces, honey, soy sauce, barbecue sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, ginger paste, garlic paste, crushed red chillies, salt and pepper. Mix everything together until the chicken pieces are properly coated.

Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and keep it aside in a bowl. DON’T throw out the liquid in your slow cooker.

This tastes best when it’s fresh but leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. The sauce will probably be very thick. I recommend heating on low heat in a non-stick saucepan with a splash of water.
