Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

I love Chinese Honey Chicken, it’s one of those dishes that always has to be ordered when we get Chinese takeaway, along with the fried rice!  Unlike Chinese Honey Chicken this recipe doesn’t have batter, instead the chicken is coated in a honey sauce.

As you can see in the photo I didn’t add vegetables to this recipe, but I do think it needs it, some broccoli, capsicum and carrot would be lovely. You can either add them steamed at the end, or add them half way through the slow cooking process.
