We learned last summer that cooking hot meals during the summer can be, how do we say it, FREAKING HOT! Now that we have 1 year of blogging under our belts, it’s safe to say we have learned our lesson. No we aren’t only eating cold things for dinner like salad, Popsicles, or gazpacho, we’ve been using our slow cooker more for a nice hot dinner without having to fire up the stove or oven.
To help you guys out this summer, we’ll try to post more slow cooked meals (which come in handy during the school year). This is a slow cooked honey sesame chicken recipe we found on a blog called Six Sister’s Stuff. We halved the recipe and changed it ever so slightly. It turned out sweet and full of delicious flavors. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!
P.S. – Make sure to have cooked rice ready to serve this over.
