- Chicken - Cornstarch - Pepper - Cooking oil - Hoisin sauce - Soy sauce - Honey - Rice vinegar - Garlic + ginger - Green onions and sesame seeds


Place the chicken in a bowl and sprinkle the cornstarch and pepper over the top. Mix the chicken around so that it is well coated.

Heat the oil in a large, nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear it until it is well browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.

Add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger to your crockpot and stir well. Add the chicken and stir to coat the chicken in the sauce.

Cook for 3-4 hours on low heat, until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is very tender. Serve with some sliced green onions and sesame seeds over the top.
