Instructions

  • Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Season chicken with the spices.
  • Add all of the ingredients on top except for the water and corn starch (the order doesn't really matter)
  • Cook on high for 4 hours (or medium for 6, low for 8)
  • In a small sauce pan, whisk the cold water with the cornstarch until well blended.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker to the sauce pan and whisk.
  • Heat over medium heat until it bubbles and thickens.
  • Mix the thickened liquid back into the slow cooker and stir. Let it cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve chicken over rice. Top with some of the sauce and then some sesame seeds.
