You know that you have found a keeper when you ask the kids what should we make for dinner, and one yells, "Sesame chicken!" and then all the other kids follow with, "Yes, I love that stuff, please Mom." Yep, it is a keeper! I found this recipe in a church cookbook one day when I was searching for a recipe that could be made in the crockpot. I love crockpot meals on days that are going to be hectic and this was one of those days.
3/4 C. tomato juice
1/4 C. soy sauce
3/4 C. brown sugar
3/4 C. chicken broth
1 1/2 T. minced garlic
2 T. sesame seeds
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
Throw everything in the crockpot. Cook on low heat 6-8 hours. Turn the chicken after about 3 hours to make sure all sides get in the sauce. Serve over rice.
I buy a 6 pack of tomato juice that comes in 5.5 oz cans. I found this to be the best price and one can is about 3/4 C. So they are perfect. If you are lucky enough to live near a WINCO, buy your sesame seeds there, in the bulk section. You will spend about $2 for a big baggy of them, rather than $5 in the already bottled spice section.
Hope you enjoy!!
