Ingredients

  • 3-4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce (found in the Asian section of most grocery stores)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1-2 teaspoons sriracha sauce* (found in the Asian section of most grocery stores)
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • optional: chopped green onions, cilantro, crushed red pepper flakes - for garnish

Instructions

  • Place chicken in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl whisk together honey, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, and sriracha sauce (or crushed red pepper flakes). Pour sauce into the slow cooker. Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken to a large bowl, then shred with two forks. Cover bowl with foil or a towel to keep heat in. Transfer sauce from the slow cooker to a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Stir together cold water and corn starch in a small bowl until dissolved, then add to sauce pan and stir until thickened. Remove pan from heat and pour sauce over chicken.
  • Serve with cooked rice if desired and top with sesame seeds, green onions, and/or cilantro.
