Slow Cooker Orange Hoisin Chicken

Slow Cooker Orange Hoisin Chicken
2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
3 slices fresh peeled ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp cold water
1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
sliced green onions

Combine orange juice concentrate, honey, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil. Pour into a large ziploc bag. Add chicken and coat evenly. Transfer chicken to crock pot and pour remaining sauce on top. Cover and cook on low heat for 5-7 hours.

Transfer chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Strain sauce into a saucepan. In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and water. Bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat and add cornstarch mixture into sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, until sauce is thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Pour some of the sauce over the chicken. Serve the remaining sauce at the table. Serve chicken over rice. Top with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onion.
