Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 4


  • 3 large, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 Tbs cornstarch
  • sliced scallions, for garnish
  • sesame seeds, for garnish


  • Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, hoisin, olive oil, garlic, onion and crushed red pepper flakes, and then pour the sauce over the chicken.
  • Cover the slow cooker and cook the chicken on LOW for 4 to 5 hours until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and use two forks to shred the chicken. Place the chicken in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of cold water to make a slurry.
  • Transfer the liquids from the slow cooker into a small saucepan set over medium-high heat and whisk in the slurry. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook it until it reduces and has thickened slightly, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken, tossing to combine. Serve the chicken topped with sliced scallions and sesame seeds.
