I couldn’t have created this recipe for Slow Cooker Sesame Garlic Chicken without help of my husband.
This slow cooker sesame garlic chicken reminds me of a teriyaki chicken dish, that local Hawaiian restaurant serves. But now when I have a craving, I can make this, and it’s a lot cheaper too! I like to serve this with jasmine rice, and a drizzle of Sriracha hot chili sauce (only if want to make it super spicy!).
