Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken Lettuce Wraps


Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I pretty much love crock pot recipes because they are usually fairly easy and cheap.  They usually don’t have too many ingredients, most you probably have on hand already.  This recipe is done in a pretty quick amount of time in crock pot terms, too- 3 to 4 hours.  When I made this last week, it left a really delightful smell in the house, and even being a vegetarian I was drooling looks at this.  The sauce looks really good, and I think it pairs perfectly with a nice crisp lettuce wrap.  You could also opt to serve this over rice, or in taco shells…I think there are a lot of options here.  As for the taste? My boss said it was really good, and described it as having a unique smokey-sweet flavor.

Ingredients
  1. 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
  2. black pepper, to taste
  3. 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce (tamari for gluten-free)
  4. 1/4 cup honey
  5. 1/4 cup tomato paste
  6. 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  7. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  8. 1 tbsp water
  9. 1 tsp sesame oil
  10. 1 tsp onion powder
  11. 1 tsp sriracha hot chili sauce, or more to taste
  12. 1 heaping tbsp cornstarch
  13. 1/4 cup water
  14. 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
  15. 2 medium scallions, chopped for garnish
  16. Lettuce for lettuce cups (I used bib lettuce)
Instructions
  1. 1. Place the chicken in the slow cooker and season with black pepper.
  2. 2. In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, 1 tbsp water, sesame oil, onion powder and sriracha hot chili sauce. Pour over chicken and cook on LOW 3-4 hours.
  3. 3. Remove chicken, leaving the sauce in the slow cooker. Shred chicken with two forks; set aside.
  4. 4. In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/4 cup water; add to the slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook on HIGH until slightly thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes; return chicken to the slow cooker and mix well.
  5. Serve chicken and sauce in lettuce cups and top with sesame seeds and chopped scallions for garnish.
  6. This could also be served over rice if you prefer that over the lettuce cups.
