I took an unannounced week off last week from blogging and I HEARD about the missing Crockpot Tuesday post from several of you. Next time I need a mini-blogger-vaca, I will schedule a “re-run” and let you know in advance. You people are hardcore!

I modified another recipe that Mike found … and by “modify” I mean that I forgot to add two ingredients that were in the title, but the family devoured this stuff, so I changed the title and am keeping the Tiede version for a do-over in the future.


Put 7-8 skinless, frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot.


Combine and pour over chicken breasts:

1 1/2 cups honey

1/2 cup soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)

1/2 cup mirin (Not to be found at Walmart … FYI)

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

4 tablespoons sesame oil

4 tablespoons rice vinegar

3 tablespoons ground ginger

2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.

Shred and serve over rice. (We use brown rice. The kids grumble about this as a rule, but this time they were so excited about the smell of the meal, they didn’t say a word. I made 8 servings of brown rice and it wasn’t enough!)

We steamed broccoli to go with this. Mike and I added it to the honey sesame chicken and rice and LOVED it!

Sorry, I have no picture of the final product. They simply ate it too fast!
