GF Sesame Chicken In The Crock-Pot

I think your family will love this tasty GF Sesame Chicken recipe.  There is a surprising “punch” of flavor that will have everyone going back for seconds…so you’re probably not going to have leftovers. You can make this recipe with or without the sesame seeds.

Scoop the saucy chicken over long-grain rice, gluten-free egg noodles, or cauliflower rice for fewer carbs. Add some fresh-cut pineapple cubes on the side, as it makes the perfect flavor blend.

Another great way to serve GF Sesame Chicken is in a wrap. There are outstanding gluten-free tortillas that taste like the real deal; look for Mission Gluten-Free Tortilla Wraps.

Another tasty recipe you might like to try in the crock-pot is Sweet & Sour Crock-Pot Chicken.
