Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 8 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup vinegar, rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1 cup brown rice, raw
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 cup sesame seeds

Serve With

  • 4 cup broccoli, florets
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cup pineapple

Instructions

  • Add chicken to a slow cooker. Chop onion and mince garlic.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, onion, garlic, pepper, and ginger. Pour mixture over chicken and cook on low for 4-5 hours until no longer pink in the middle (avoid over-cooking so it does not dry out).
  • Approximately 20 minutes before chicken is done cooking, make rice as directed on package. Once chicken is done, remove it from the crockpot and cut into smaller pieces.
  • Pour sauce from the slow cooker into a small sauce pan. Whisk water and cornstarch together in a small bowl and then add to sauce; heat over medium and whisk continuously until thickened.
  • Toss chicken back into slow cooker and add sauce; stir to coat evenly. Cover until ready to serve.
  • Cut broccoli  into bite-sized pieces and then add to a microwave-safe dish along with 1/3 cup of water; cover and cook on high power for 4-5 minutes until tender.
  • Serve chicken over rice, sprinkled with sesame seeds; serve broccoli and pineapple on the side.
