Soy Pollo

I had a package of chicken thighs in the freezer, with which I usually make Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup.  I don’t particularly love chicken thighs, but I do love that soup. The problem?  It contains not only (evil) beans but also (devil) corn and corn tortillas.  In other words, NOT paleo-friendly.  So I looked for another recipe for chicken thighs in the crockpot (sans beans, corn, and other foods that make meals taste delicious) and came across this Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken.

Green onions and sesame seeds make food pretty.
Scallions & sesame seeds make food pretty.

The recipe is simple, and I even substituted cornstarch for coconut flour to thicken the sauce.  Eric loved it.  As it’s an Asian-inspired dish, it contains a significant amount of soy sauce.  And, since Eric is paleo, he omitted the bed of rice and just went for a giant pile of chicken.  Which led to Eric joking, “Soy Pollo!”
