  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions (4 medium)

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in slow cooker. In medium microwavable bowl, mix onion, sesame oil, garlic chili sauce, tomato paste and gingerroot. Microwave uncovered on High 4 to 5 minutes; stirring occasionally, until onions are softened. Stir in honey and soy sauce.

    Pour sauce over chicken in slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours or until chicken is tender and cooked through. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water. Remove chicken to cutting board. Stir cornstarch mixture into sauce in slow cooker. Increase heat setting to High; cover. Cook 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • 3
    Shred or cut chicken into bite-size pieces. When sauce is slightly thickened, return chicken to slow cooker, and stir into sauce. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seed.

  • Look for bags of frozen cooked brown and white rice in the frozen vegetable section of your grocery store. They are a snap to prepare.
