This is delicious! A winner of a Pinterest recipe from The Comfort of Cooking. If you have pinned it – try it! You know those recipes where you start eating it right out of the crockpot because it is that good? Yup this recipe is one of those.
I followed the recipe exactly as written and it turned out terrific, I will absolutely be making this again. My husband loved it, even more when he got to take leftovers to work for lunch.
I used 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (not thighs which are listed as an option), and cooked on low for 4 hours. Once I shredded the chicken I placed it back in the thickened sauce, stirred in one tablespoon of sesame seeds and then set the slow-cooker to warm to keep it hot as it was done a bit ahead of dinner time. I served the chicken with brown rice, asparagus and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
This was a huge hit with the family. It does include 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes and I felt like the kids felt the heat a bit so depending on your family decrease it if needed. My husband and I loved it just the way it was.
Now, the next day I used some leftover chicken to make a wrap. OMG now that was so yummy. It tasted great cold. I shredded some romaine lettuce and topped it with the chicken and rolled it up in a large tortilla. Now it would have been perfect with some asian slaw – so try that if you have any. Seriously so good.
