Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

Getting reviews...
This easy slow-cooker chicken dish hits all the right notes with its sweet honey and punchy garlic flavor. We opted to use boneless, skinless thighs instead of leaner chicken breasts because they stay nice and juicy as they cook down in this irresistible sauce.

Special equipment:
a 6-quart slow cooker
  1. Place the chicken thighs in an even layer in the slow cooker.
  2. Whisk together the honey, soy sauce, crushed red pepper, garlic, ginger, vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil and a few good grinds of black pepper in a large glass measuring cup or a medium bowl until combined. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook on low until the chicken is cooked through and fork-tender, 6 to 8 hours. (Alternatively, cook the chicken on high for 4 hours.) 
  3. Turn the slow cooker up to high. Whisk together the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons cold water in a small bowl to make a slurry, then mix the slurry into the sauce until combined. Submerging the sauce in the sauce as much as possible. Cover and cook on high until the sauce is thickened to the consistency of a glaze, about 30 minutes.  
  4. Transfer the chicken and sauce to a platter. Sprinkle with the scallions and toasted sesame seeds and serve with white rice.
