Crockpot Sesame Garlic Chicken

You’ll be surprised just how easy it is to make those meals you order from the take-out menu. Like this easy Crockpot Sesame Garlic Chicken recipe I’m sharing with you today.

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.
