Servings 4 servings


  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1-2 tbsp sriracha depending on how spicy you would like this
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 scallions sliced thin, divided (white parts for cooking, green for serving)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • sesame seeds for garnish if desired


  • Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, hoisin, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, sriracha and the white parts only of the scallions.
  • Pour the sauce mixture ontop of the chicken and cook for 2-3 hours on low. (Cooking time depends on the thickness of your chicken. My chicken breasts were pretty small and took 2 1/2 hours.)
  • Remove the chicken from the liquid and place on a plate or cutting board. Allow the chicken to rest for a couple of minutes and then shred with two forks or slice it up with a knife.
  • Transfer the liquid from the slow cooker to a small saucepan.
  • Whisk 2 tablespoons of water with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce.
  • Cook on high until bubbly and thickened, whisking constantly. Pour the sauce back in the slow cooker along with the shredded chicken and toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately with sesame seeds and green onions for garnish.
