It has been quite rainy here in Western New York. We get a nice day every few days, but still a lot of rain for mid June. Today is a beautiful day, but yesterday was not. Yesterday was a day for curling up with a cup of tea and a good book and letting the crock pot do the cooking for you. There was no real plan when I started making dinner, besides chicken with a sauce of some sort. This is what I came up with,  the honey and I both found it quite delicious. Don’t be alarmed by the lengthy list of ingredients, everything was chopped, measured, stirred and in the crock pot in about 10 minutes. Although I made this on a rainy day, it is a light enough meal for any Spring it Summer evening.

Sweet & Spicy Orange Sesame Chicken

3/4 lb of boneless skinless chicken cut into bite size chunks
Salt & pepper
1 clove garlic- minced
1 Tbls sesame oil (can substitute olive oil)
2 heaping Tbls orange marmalade
1/4 c honey
1/4 c soy sauce
1 Tbls siracha
1/8 c chopped onion
1/8 c brown sugar
1/8 c ketchup
Sesame seeds – optional
2 tsp corn starch

1. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, salt & pepper chicken & place in crock pot
2. Whisk together remaining ingredients & pour over chicken
3. Cook on low 2.5-3 hrs, stirring once or twice to coat chicken in sauce
4. Serve over prepared brown rice with carrots & broccoli, sprinkle with sesame seeds
5. Enjoy!

* sauce will thicken slightly and goes great combined with the rice, but if you would like thicker sauce, remove chicken from sauce & add more corn starch in the last half hour of cooking. Return chicken to sauce to coat once you reach desired thickness.
