This is one of my favorite ways to whip up a tasty chicken dish that you will want to place on your monthly rotation. And, the whole thing gets whipped up in your slow cooker/Instant Pot/Crock Pot. All of the sauce ingredients are designed to develop multiple layers of flavor. As a matter of fact, the sauce is so good, you just might want to double it. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    One of my favorite ways to serve this is on a dish with some sautéed carrots, and rice, and have a few warm flour tortillas on the side. Do not forget to sprinkle on some of the toasted sesame seeds before serving. Enjoy.
