Description

A delicious Asian shredded chicken over rice that is gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free. A satisfying meal that beats take-out any day!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Honey
  • ½ cups Tamari
  • 1 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 whole Onion, Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Minced
  • ½ cups Tomato Sauce
  • ¼ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • 6 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 4 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • ¼ cups Water
  • 4 cups Cooked Brown Or White Rice
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
  • ¼ cups Chopped Green Onion

Preparation

In the crock of your slow cooker mix together the honey, tamari, sesame oil, onion, ginger, tomato sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Be sure everything is completely mixed. Add the whole chicken breasts and mix to make sure the sauce coats all surfaces. Cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is completely cooked through and soft.

When the chicken is completely cooked remove the chicken pieces to a cutting board and shred with two forks.

In a small cup mix together 4 tablespoons of cornstarch and a little bit of water. Pour cornstarch mixture into the remaining sauce in the slow cooker. Put the lid on and turn on high heat. Let the sauce come to a slow boil to thicken. If your slow cooker doesn’t heat the sauce enough to thicken it, pour sauce into a saucepan and complete this step on your stove top over medium heat. Then once sauce is thickened pour it back into your slow cooker. Add the shredded chicken to the sauce and keep the slow cooker on warm until ready to serve.

To serve spoon shredded chicken and sauce over cooked rice and garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
Enjoy!
