Crockpot Sesame Chicken

Healthy Crockpot Sesame Chicken | Clean Eating Crockpot Recipes

Nick was craving Chinese food but of course there is NO WAY we are going to eat that right now! So, we decided to break out the crockpot again and find a good substitute recipe that is healthier.

I found the original recipe on familyfreshmeals. I made a few tweaks to make it even healthier – I cut back on the soy sauce and used reduced sodium to cut back on the salt. I also cut back on the honey a bit.

Also, I put the red pepper flakes in AFTER it was done cooking, because I gave this to my kids and I didn’t want to give them the red pepper flakes 😉

If you are calorie conscious, make sure you don’t overuse the sauce … TRUST ME, it’s easy!

Overall, very delicious, like the restaurant, but WAY healthier!

Makes about 5 – 6 servings!

  • 1 – 1.5 Lb boneless chicken breast
  • 1 cup honey (can cut back to 1/2 cup for reduced calories)
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce (can cut down to 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup organic ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 Tsp red pepper flakes
  • Sesame seeds


In a bowl, mix honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, salt and pepper flakes.

Place chicken in crockpot and pour mixture over chicken.

Cook on LOW for 5 – 6 hours, or until chicken is tender.

Use a slotted spoon to remove chicken from sauce. You can shred or serve the chicken pieces whole. I used “strips”, which was delicious!

Serve over rice. You can also use quinoa or noodles also, or go low-calorie and put the in a lettuce wrap.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds & enjoy!
