Skinny on Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken Thighs
These slow cooker sesame chicken thighs were a big hit with the entire family.
Brown rice and broccoli make nice accompaniments.
These would be yummy served over zucchini noodles too!
If you or someone you are dining with prefers more spice, serve with crushed red pepper flake or sriracha sauce for extra heat.
