Crock Pot Sesame Chicken (Freezer Meal)

I made my own Sesame Chicken Freezer Kit for the crock pot and it delicious and easy. It’s so fun to make without a bowl and spoon I just have to share.

I started with bite-size portions of boneless chicken breasts and tossed it in a gallon size bag with flour. Seal the bag and grab the corners while flipping the bag over and over on your counter; watch the pieces magically coat themselves. The sauce bag easily holds liquid ingredients when it sits inside a glass measuring cup for support.

Now that was easy. I gently kneading the sauce until well mixed. Both bags are labeled and ready to go into my freezer.

Cooking Day: The kit should be thawed in a thawing box (plastic shoe box in the fridge) and ready to drop into the crock pot. I add some water to the sauce to cover the chicken. Cook on low up to five or six hours until the chicken is done and the sauce will thicken as it cooks.

Wow, it’s ready to eat without a skillet, bowl and no prep work on cooking day. That’s my kind of meal. Better yet, I’ve got cooked brown rice in my thawing box as well. I can reheat for five minutes and serve it with a side of veges for a complete meal in about 5 minutes. Woot!

    This looks delicious! Went out yesterday to purchase chicken breasts and rice vinegar just after seeing this post so that I can try it! Yum! Thanks!

    How do you freeze the brown rice and how long will it keep? Just discovered your site.
    Thanks

  3. I’m wondering if I can use regular vinegar. This looks wonderful!

    Just love easy healthy recipes, vegan, vegetarian or regular food.

    I have this in the crockpot now, can’t wait to see how it comes out. On your recipes could you give an approx poundage for the chicken as well? Chicken breast can vary greatly in size. Thanks

  6. Well it turned out very delicious. I stirred it after 4 hours and put it on warm, and left the lid cracked to ensure a thick sauce…mistake….it got overly thick. So I added a little water to try and thin it out. I think it would be good broiled (in a metal baking pan) for a few minutes to crisp up the edges…I would make again. Thanks

  7. RejoicedOver says:

    Once it’s defrosted, does the flour stick to the chicken or does the chicken get sticky before you put it in the crockpot?

  8. Just wanted you to now I got a phone call tonight from my daughter-in-law saying how delicious this was. I stocked their freezer while she was in the hospital having her first baby :) . I used boneless chicken thighs, instead of breasts.

  9. Do you add the water in the marinade prior to freezing?

    • Sarah, I add enough water to cover the chicken in the crock pot when I cook it. I just swish some water in the marinade bag to clean it out ;)

      • So the water that is listed in the ingredient list is for when you put it in the crockpot, correct? It is listed under sauce, that’s why I’m confused.

  10. I cooked this tonight following your recipe and it is DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
