Slow Cooked Chinese Sesame Chicken

Here is another “throw in the crock meal” with a different taste. A great way to use up any left over barbecue sauce before the summer season.
It is also fairly inexpensive. Serve it with some rice or noodles and a green vegetable and you have a great meal that will beat any carry out in paper containers. By the way, did you know those were designed to unfold into a plate? Just don't try that with the fried rice. Trust slave, rice takes forever to sweep up.

This can be pulled together easy at lunch time and be ready for a good dinner. The house will smell better than any air freshener can deliver.


  • 1 C. Maple Syrup
  • ½ C. Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 2 Tbs. Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. Onion Powder
  • ¼ C. Barbecue Sauce of Choice
  • 2 ½ lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs, chopped
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


Wipe out the slow cooker and spray it well, cover and set to LOW.

Trim the fat off of the chicken. Any time you cook meat in a slow cooker, you want to trim as much fat off as you can. In just about every other way to cook, the fat would give flavor and tenderize. However in a cooker, that fat just melts and floats to the surface. The harm it does outweighs the good.

Cut up the chicken thighs into 1 – 1½ inch pieces.

Peel and mince the garlic.

In a large bowl whisk together the soy sauce, barbecue sauce, maple syrup, garlic, the onion powder, peanut butter, and the oil. Whisk until well blended.
Stir in the pieces of chicken and toss around with a big spoon.

Pour all this into the cooker and cover.
Let cook for about 4 hours.
To be sure the chicken is done, insert a thermometer into a piece of chicken to see if it registers 165 degrees.
Serve with a side of white rice.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.

You can make this more like a sweet and sour chicken by adding diced green pepper and big chunks of pineapple during the last half hour of cooking.

Great lyrics on this one.

So lucky to be serving my Master Indy

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
