  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic minced (or add more to your tastes)
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons Sriracha hot chili sauce or more to taste
  • 1 heaping tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water
  • sesame seeds to taste
  • chopped green onions to taste


  • In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, tomato paste, rice wine vinegar, minced garlic, sesame oil, onion powder, & Sriracha. Place the chicken breasts in your slow cooker, & pour the sauce over top.
  • Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Shred the chicken with 2 forks, leaving it in the crockpot.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch & water. Pour the mixture into the crockpot, and turn the heat up to high. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
