Sweet, tangy, spicy, garlicky and gingery. You never expect something that is this simple to make to taste this deep and complex. With a maximum of 10 minutes of hands-on time required to put this together, you will be thrilled and so will the rest of your family!
Very lightly season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and place them in the slow cooker.
Whisk together the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, canola and sesame oils, ginger, garlic and pepper flakes in a mixing bowl and pour over the chicken thighs. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.
Use tongs or a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken to a rimmed plate or bowl and cover lightly with foil, leaving the sauce in the slow cooker.
Stir the cornstarch into the water with a fork or small whisk until dissolved. Whisk the mixture into the sauce in the slow cooker. Cover the slow-cooker and turn the heat to high. Let it cook and thicken for 15 minutes.
Carefully transfer the chicken back into the slow-cooker and mix to coat the chicken with the thickened sauce.
Serve the pieces of chicken over hot cooked rice. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and garnish with sesame seeds and scallions.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
