Honey sesame chicken is a popular Chinese takeout order, but you can make a much healthier and more nutritious version at home with your slow cooker.
We love making Asian inspired dinners at home because it allows us to control exactly what ingredients are going into the meal – and we don’t have to skimp on any of the flavour.
With this recipe, you still do a little stir frying (the red and green bell peppers really make the dish pop), but you have the added benefit of tender, slow cooked chicken. After the chicken cooks for a few hours in a honey and soy sauce mixture (you could take this time to brush up on your chopsticks skills), transfer to a skillet or wok along with the vegetables for a quick sauté.
You could serve it over rice (we used a rice cooker to make perfect sticky rice), or in lettuce wraps for a handheld meal. If you want to make this a low-carb recipe, just omit the rice from the lettuce wraps.
