Slow Cooker Asian Sweet Chili Sesame Chicken knocks the socks off of traditional Sesame Chicken with the additional depth of sweet and spicy Asian Sweet Chili Sauce AND all you have to do is add the ingredients to your slow cooker and dinner is served!
I have been grilling a lot this summer and have so many grilling recipe ideas to make/share before the summer is over that I have neglected my other favorite summer cooking method – the crockpot! This little counter cooker allows you to beat the summer heat by adding all your ingredients then walking away as your home fills with the enticing aroma – and in this case – the sweet and spicy aroma of Sweet Chili Sesame Chicken. Its a beautiful thing.
But also kind of tortuous. But the wait is sssssoooooooooo worth it.
This sesame chicken is infused with Asian yumminess from swimming in a sauce of – you guessed it – Asian sweet chili sauce, toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, ketchup, hoisin sauce (like Asian BBQ Sauce), brown sugar, garlic, onion and ginger.
Just look at it drinking in the Asian Sweet Chli Sesame Sauce as it cooks…
Once the chicken is cooked and shredded, you mix in a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce so every crevice of the chicken is drenched in the unforgettable sweet heat sauce.
Move over chopsticks.
This is no time for pretty eating.
