We are now two weeks into the new school year.
Adjustment time. As in- get my act together and figure out what I’m making for dinner before 6 pm. I’m always looking for quick-fix dinner ideas. Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken takes a little thought ahead of time, but you’re set when the “What’s for dinner??” question surfaces. It’s simple and a complete meal when served with a dish of stir fried veggies.
The leftovers would be perfect for lunch served over some greens tossed with a little Balsamic dressing.
Lunch for Momma.
That’s what I’m talking about.

Sesame seeds in slow cooker, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic, pepper flakes and pepper. Place chicken in cooker, turn to cover with sauce.
