Sweet Sesame Crock-Pot Chicken (Secret Recipe Club)

Recipe: Sweet Sesame Crock-Pot Chicken

Sweet Sesame Crock-Pot Chicken on Shockingly Delicious [1]Summary: A low-salt marinade is used to make a flavorful teriyaki glaze for Crock-Pot chicken, for an Asian-influenced dinner.


  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 5 thighs)
  • 9 tablespoons Mrs. Dash Sweet Teriyaki Marinade, divided use
  • Slurry: 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed into 2 teaspoons water
  • Garnish: Sesame seeds, chopped green onions or chives
  • Served on: Cooked rice or shredded Napa cabbage (for the low-carbers)
  • Serve with: Steamed gai lan or broccoli and steamed carrot coins


  1. Mist inside of crock with nonstick spray. Lay chicken pieces in the crock, and top with 6 tablespoons of the marinade. Spread it over the chicken, close the lid and cook on LOW for about 5 hours. The chicken will release juice over this time, so the juices will accumulate in the crock with the marinade.
  2. When chicken is done, remove it to another plate, and pour juices from crock into a small sauce pan. Bring juice to a boil, and then add slurry of cornstarch and water, stirring while adding. Bring it back to a boil; it will thicken. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of the marinade to the thickened juices, and boil for about 30 seconds or so.
  3. Put the chicken atop cooked rice, shredded Napa cabbage or your choice of “bed,” and pour thick teriyaki over. Sprinkle with chopped chives and sesame seeds, for pretty.Sweet Sesame Crock-Pot Chicken on Shockingly Delicious [2]
