  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 chicken thighs, 1/3 cup sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds, and 1 1/2 teaspoons green onions)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 8 bone-in chicken thighs (2 3/4 pounds), skinned
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions

Preparation

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer chicken to a 4-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray.

2. Combine soy sauce and next 5 ingredients (through garlic); pour over chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 2 1/2 hours or until chicken is tender. Transfer chicken to a platter; keep warm.

3. Pour cooking liquid through a sieve into a small saucepan to measure 1 1/4 cups. Discard solids. Bring cooking liquid to a boil over medium-high heat.
