I haven’t been around for a while! Let me explain, I am graduating from college, looking for a job, and full-time student teaching. Yeah, I’m a tad busy. However, today I am here to share one of my favorite recipes with you! It is a crock pot recipe for honey sesame chicken and it is just plain amazing!
While I was home, I made this awesome Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken. It is super tasty and it was super easy to make. This is what I’m bringing for lunch today! While I was home, I made little sandwiches for myself. Then, I left a bunch at home for my mom and dad and took some leftovers back with me to Madison! The chicken is juicy, tasty, and sweet! It is perfect as a sandwich or for dinner served with some sort of side!
