Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken

Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken

If you love the classic take-out dish of sesame chicken but want something a little healthier, consider this slow cooker recipe where the chicken is slow-cooked rather than deep fried.  The sauce is just the right amount of salty and spicy.  If you like more spice, simply add more red pepper flakes or my secret ingredient, Sriracha sauce.
