Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame ChickenSlow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken is one of the easiest dinners you can make. The chicken gets incredibly juicy and full of flavor. Cooked in sesame oil, soy sauce and LOTS of garlic, this meal is very satisfying. Bonus points to the Slow Cooker for doing all the heavy lifting here, which means that this meal requires minimum prep time and work. I like serving the Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken over brown rice, with sesame seeds and some chopped green onions.

Tips and Tricks to make the perfect Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken Recipe:

  • To get the chicken nice, brown and not soggy, make sure the chicken is NOT covered in liquid, for the tops to perfectly cook.
  • While not necessary, for best results and if you want the chicken even more crisper on the outside, you can brown it for 2-3 minutes over high heat, before adding it to the slow cooker.
  • If you are looking to make this recipe Gluten Free, use Tamari sauce instead of soy sauce.
  • You can add even more garlic, or if you please less, I personally love garlicky meals, so the more the merrier for me.
  • For a spicier kick, add 1-2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes.
  • Do not replace the fresh garlic with powder garlic.

Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame ChickenTools/ingredients I used to make the Best Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken Recipe:

  • Crockpot – very reasonably priced and definitely a kitchen must have if you are busy.
  • Soy Sauce – I like using lite say sauce in my recipes, as it has less sodium and its easier from me to control the saltiness of the dish, I always buy a large bottle like this one and keep it in my pantry.
  • Sesame Seeds – these little guys are perfect in asian recipes, also sprinkled on salads and fish, a jar will last you a long time.

  4. If I wanted to make this as a chicken dump recipe, would it work to brown chicken then put all ingredients in a freezer bag and freeze?

  5. Ooh I’ve been trying to use my slow cooker more and think I need to try this recipe!

  6. Can I marinate the mixture in the fridge overnight, or should I cook it immediately?
