  • 1 ½ lb boneless, skinless chicken
  • breasts
  • 1 ½ Tb sesame oil
  • ¼ c soy sauce
  • ¼ c orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, grated
  • ¼ c brown sugar
  • 2 Tb hoisin sauce
  • 1 c peas , frozen (optional)
  • 2 c broccoli florets, frozen (optional)
  • ¼ c water
  • 1 ½ Tb corn starch
  • ½ c chicken broth
  • 1 Tb sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 3 c rice, cooked for serving


  • To begin, cut the chicken breasts into large chunks – about an inch and a half.
  • In a non-stick skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium high heat.
  • Add in the chicken and cook until it is just opaque, turning a couple times.
  • Spray the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray.
  • Place the chicken in your crockpot.
  • While the chicken is cooking, combine the soy sauce, orange juice, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, and hoisin sauce in a cup. Whisk those all together.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken and stir to coat. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  • After about 3 1/2 hours, start some rice to serve this with. In the last 15 minutes of cooking, add in either a cup of frozen peas or 2 cups of frozen broccoli florets into the crockpot. Whichever you have handy.
  • After it has finished cooking, strain the liquid into a saucepan and turn the heat on medium. Keep the chicken and vegetables in the crockpot.
  • In a small dish or cup, whisk together the water and cornstarch. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the saucepan along with the chicken broth.
  • Bring it to a boil, stirring continually.
  • Pour the thickened sauce back into the crockpot over the chicken and veggies. If you don’t have toasted sesame seeds, simply put a tablespoon of them in a dry skillet and cook over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes, or until barely golden and fragrant.
  • Serve over your cooked rice topped with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onion.
  • Enjoy!
