Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces
  • 2.5 tbsp arrowroot flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

For the Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar OR 4 pitted and blended Medjool dates if doing Whole30
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp apple juice (100% juice, no added sugar)
  • 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Dice chicken and then sprinkle the arrowroot, salt and pepper over the chicken. Use your hands to toss together to evenly coat the chicken with the arrowroot.
  2. Add the chicken into the slow cooker.
  3. Mix the sauce together in a small bowl and then pour over the chicken.
  4. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 6-7 hours.
  5. Once done, add an additional 1-2 tsp arrowroot if you’d like the sauce any thicker. Garnish with green onion or sesame seeds if you’d like, and serve!

Notes

  • If using pitted dates, blend them with 3 tbsp hot water to create a paste to replace the coconut sugar
