Honey Sesame Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 C honey
1/2 C soy sauce
1/2 C diced onion
1/4 C ketchup
2 TBS vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, chopped
4 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 6 TBS water

Season both sides of chicken with lightly with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 hours, or just until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from crock pot, leave sauce. Dissolve 4 teaspoons of cornstarch in 6 tablespoons of water and pour into crock pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Replace lid and cook sauce on high for 10 more minutes or until slightly thickened. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice or noodles.
