This post was originally published in March, 2016. We’ve given it a shiny new look and it’s now even more delicious than before!
Looking back through our blog archive the other night during a 2 am feeding session, I noticed that the first meal I cooked after my older daughter was born was a slow cooker sesame chicken.
Now, two and half years later, I have again used the genius slow cooker to cook my first dinner after having our second daughter two weeks ago. So you will have to excuse me if this blog post doesn’t make much sense as I am still in the thick of the newborn haze. Once again, thank goodness for the slow cooker!
There is minimal thought or effort required to produce this sweet and tangy tender pulled chicken. Dump the onions and chicken, mix up the sauce, pour it on top, flip the switch to low, and dinner is done in about five and a half hours. No muss, no fuss.
Similar to our other pulled chicken, this too is so versatile. It can be served over any grain or pasta, in a wrap or on a bun, or with some sweet potato fries and slaw as I served it. It is also freezable so it is perfect for when you too don’t have your wits about you for whatever reason – simply defrost and dinner is ready.
It also makes a delicious 3 am snack – that breastfeeding hunger is real I tell you!
