Chinese New Year 2019: Asian Chicken in a Slow Cooker

Chinese New Year 2019

Asian Chicken in a Slow Cooker


2 lbs skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup of light soy sauce
1/3 cup of oyster sauce
1/3 cup of honey
6 crushed garlic cloves
1 1/2 tbsps of cornstarch
¼ cup spring onions
1 tbsp of sesame seeds


In your slow cooker bowl, whisk the soy sauce, oyster sauce, honey and garlic together to make a saucy texture.

Remove bones from the chicken and coat them in the sauce. Place slow cooker lid on top of the bowl and cook for 3.5 hours on high or 7 hours on low setting.

When the sauce begins to simmer, in a second bowl, whisk together the water (approximately 3 tablespoons worth) and the cornstarch.

Stir the cornstarch mixture into the simmering sauce, ensuring it is incorporated fully.

Place the lid on top again and cook until the chicken is nice and tender. We want it preferably to be falling apart at this point.

If desired, sprinkle sliced spring onions and sesame seeds on top.
