-6 qt. crockpot
-6-8 (ish) chicken thighs (approx. 2 lbs.) - I used breasts
-freshly ground black pepper
-1 small onion, diced
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-1 cup honey
-1/4 cup tomato paste
-1/2 cup coconut aminos (or gluten free soy sauce if you're not too strict)
-1/2 tsp red chili paste (red chili flakes would work, too)
-2 T arrowroot powder
Plop your chicken in the bottom of the crockpot. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper over the top. Maybe like a teaspoon of each. Or a half teaspoon-ish. You know, whatever.
Mix together remaining ingredients except arrowroot powder and sesame seeds in a large bowl. Then dump the mixture over the chicken.
Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked through. Remove a small amount of the liquid from the crockpot and mix in arrowroot powder until it is totally dissolved. Add the liquid back to the crockpot and cook on HIGH for another fifteen minutes with the lid off to let the liquid thicken.
You could serve it over steamed cauliflower and broccoli but this is fantastic either by itself. This recipe has a lot of liquid, so find your preferred way of using it.
