Unleashing Flavor: Mastering the Art of Crock Pot Sesame Chicken


In the realm of culinary delights, few dishes manage to strike the perfect balance between simplicity and tantalizing flavor like Crock Pot Sesame Chicken. As connoisseurs of exquisite taste, we embark on a journey to unravel the secrets of crafting this savory masterpiece that transcends the ordinary.

Ingredients that Elevate

To commence our culinary escapade, gather the following premium ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of golden honey
  • 1/2 cup of smooth bourbon
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce, ensuring an umami-rich foundation
  • 2 tablespoons of dried onion for a subtle yet distinct aroma
  • 2 tablespoons of ketchup, infusing a hint of sweetness
  • 1 tablespoon of oil, chosen for its subtle flavor
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder for a touch of warmth
  • 2 teaspoons of cornstarch dissolved in 3 tablespoons of water, the secret thickening agent
  • Sesame seeds, the final flourish that transforms the dish into a visual and gustatory delight

Crafting the Culinary Symphony

Step 1: Preparing the Canvas

Begin the culinary masterpiece by placing the boneless, skinless chicken breasts into the waiting embrace of the trusty crock pot. This sets the stage for the flavor symphony about to unfold.

Step 2: The Elixir of Sweetness and Depth

In a culinary alchemy, concoct the elixir of honey, soy sauce, dried onion, ketchup, oil, bourbon, and garlic powder. Pour this liquid gold over the waiting chicken, ensuring every piece is bathed in the flavors that will soon dance on your taste buds.

Step 3: Slow and Steady

Allow the ingredients to meld and marinate by cooking on low for 3-4 hours or opting for a slightly expedited version on high for 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours. The goal? Chicken that is succulent, infused with the rich amalgamation of flavors.

Step 4: The Grand Reveal

As the aroma permeates your kitchen, remove the chicken from the crock pot, letting the sauce remain, a testament to the flavor infusion. Dissolve 2 teaspoons of cornstarch in 3 tablespoons of water and pour it into the crock pot, stirring to create a luscious, velvety sauce.

Step 5: Thickening the Tale

Replace the lid and let the sauce simmer on high for an additional ten minutes or until it achieves the desired thickness. This step elevates your dish, ensuring each bite is coated in a delectable glaze.

Step 6: The Final Flourish

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces, returning them to the crock pot. At this juncture, you have the choice to let the chicken simmer on low, allowing the flavors to further intertwine, or serve it immediately for instant gratification.

Step 7: Presentation Matters

Sprinkle sesame seeds over the dish, transforming it into a visual spectacle. Serve your Crock Pot Sesame Chicken over a bed of rice, letting the flavors and textures create a gastronomic symphony.


In conclusion, mastering the art of Crock Pot Sesame Chicken is not just a culinary endeavor; it’s a journey into the realms of taste and satisfaction. This recipe, carefully crafted with precision and attention to detail, promises to tantalize your taste buds and leave a lasting impression.
