  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoon soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup, pure
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger root, fresh
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken thigh, boneless, skinless
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 cup cornstarch


  • 2 stalk green onion
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds


  • In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, maple syrup, ketchup, Sriracha sauce, ginger, onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and garlic powder. Chop green onions and set aside, separately.
  • Season chicken with salt and remaining pepper, then place in a slow cooker; pour the sauce over top. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours (or on low for 4 hours) until no longer pink.
  • Scoop sauce out from the slow cooker and place into a small saucepan, leaving the chicken to keep warm. Whisk cornstarch together with cold water until dissolved, then pour into sauce and heat over low. Stir continuously for 5 minutes until thickened.
  • Drizzle sauce over the chicken. Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
