Crock Pot Sesame Garlic Chicken

Posted on 25 February 2013 by noelskitchen

I can’t remember the last time we ordered our favorite take-out chicken dishes from a Chinese restaurant. Going out to eat never really seems to cross our minds. We’ve become so adapted to the life of  having a meal plan , that it’s been so easy to make our meals right at home. You’ll be surprised just how easy it is to make those meals you order from the take-out menu. Like this easy Crock Pot Sesame Garlic Chicken recipe I’m sharing with you today.

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
