Make Your Own Take Out: Crockpot Edition

Kim and her husband and daughter in Chicago

When my husband and I lived in Chicago, we discovered our love for Thai food. We had 4 wonderful Thai places within walking distance to our apartment. Once we were back in the Detroit Suburbs, I missed our neighborhood Thai places and tried to create the dishes from scratch.

While some dishes were an epic fail, as time and experimenting went on, I found this culinary gem. It has worked its way into our rotation and reminds me of our early days in Chicago.

Crockpot Sesame Chicken

Ingredients:

2 lbs. boneless chicken breast

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp. sesame oil

3 cloves garlic

1 Red Pepper, Chopped

4 cups fresh broccoli

2 tsp. chopped green onion (or more if you like)

Sesame seeds (optional)

Quinoa or Rice (optional)

Directions:

  1. Place chicken into the crock pot.
  2. Mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil and garlic in a small bowl.
  3. Reserve 1/3 cup of the sauce for dipping after the recipe cooks. Pour the rest of the sauce on the chicken in the crock pot.
  4. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.
  5. Add red pepper & broccoli 45 minutes before serving.
  6. Serve over quinoa (made to directions) or over rice. Sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds.
  7. Enjoy!
