Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken

on

It was one of those weeknight meals where I just wanted magic dinner to be done. If it hadn’t been something I could cook in the crock pot, it would have been one of those nights I would have ordered take out (preferably delivery). Luckily, Skinnytaste came to the rescue with this 3 hour slow cooker dinner. I threw it in the pot when I got home from work, and was able to pick at it throughout my three hour grad school online meeting. I liked this one a lot- it was simple and pantry-friendly. I had everything on hand from other recipes; it was just a matter of dumping and combining it together!
