Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cup broccoli, florets
  • 1 1/2 cup snow peas

Sauce

  • 2/3 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 tablespoon vinegar, rice

Toppings

  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Cut chicken into 2-inch chunks, then throw them into a large freezer bag. Add 1/2 cup corn starch, seal the bag, and shake it all up!
  • Place a large skillet on the stove on medium high heat, then add 2 tablespoons sesame oil. Add the coated chicken and saute until chicken is lightly browned (not cooked through).
  • Add chicken to crockpot and throw veggies on top.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk cold broth and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch until fully dissolved. Then add 2 teaspoons sesame oil, honey, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. If needed, heat honey a bit in the microwave before adding to make sure it's runny.
  • Pour mixture over chicken and veggies, stir just enough to make sure it gets to the bottom.
  • Turn the crockpot on to low for 2-3 hour, depending on how soft you like your veggies. Serve warm over your choice of cooked rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
