What’s For Dinner Tomorrow Night? Sesame Ginger Slow-Cooker Chicken

Hey KS Fans,

One of you (Patty S.) sent me an email today with a link to this blog after I posted my sesame chicken spaghetti dinner today. She wrote that this recipe was

absolutely the most delicious sesame chicken she has ever made and that all she has to do is throw it into her crock pot in the morning before work and when she

gets home it’s ready to go!

Since I am actually starting to investigate and experiment great crock pot recipes for a new cookbook that I am outlining  – this recipe looks very promisin

  and smething I think I will definitely be testing in the near future. But in the meatime I thought let me share it with you guys and see how you like it.

I posted it tonight so that you can put it up first thing in the morning.

Let me know your verdicts!
