Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

Did you like my slow cooker chicken teriyaki? Then you just might like this slow cooker honey sesame chicken.

It’s the perfect blend of sweet from the honey and savory from the soy sauce. When you sprinkle green onions on top, the flavor goes from great to *chef’s kiss* Mwah! Beautiful.

Although I love to serve it over rice, you could just as easily serve it on sandwiches or as burrito filling. And if you have a little extra time, you could make slow cooker honey sesame chicken in advance and freeze it for a future busy night.
