Weather: 25 degrees and a lovely pink sunrise for Valentine’s Day What I’m listening to: Jason Mraz
I have for you today one sweet, tangy, chopstick-licking bowl of honey sesame love… made in the slow-cooker! How great is that? Easy schmeasy and a great way to add a little Asian flare to your dinner repertoire without having to order take-out. And, in case you’ve forgotten, I’m a huge chopstick fan. Asian food just doesn’t taste as good with a fork. True story. So, this is my appeal to you to spend some time with chopsticks. They’re sure to add a little adventure to your life.
All you do is put some boneless skinless chicken in the bottom of a slow-cooker, mix up a perky sauce, and pour it over top. And then you get to walk away, for several precious hours. Enjoy them -take a nap, read a book, go for a walk. Then, return to an amazing soy-laden, garlicky-sweet scent oozing into every corner of your house. Quick note: when I made the original recipe, I found it a little too sweet, so I reduced the honey in the recipe by 1/4c for you, my lovelies. Feel free to adjust it more to your liking.
Ugh, this was seriously so good. I didn't have time for the slow-cooker version since I just found this recipe two hours ago, but I adapted it to the stove top and it worked well. Though I added crushed pineapple and chopped cashews as well.
