I have always had a thing for sesame chicken and often make this version when I am craving it but don't want to indulge.  However lately I have been loving this slow cooker version that allows me to leave the kitchen and come home to a completed dinner.  Normally I serve it with some cauliflower rice and veggies but it's also delicious in salads, wraps, tacos, and lettuce wraps.
