  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos or tamari, if you prefer
  • Juice of 1 orange about 4 tablespoons
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper


  • Wash, pat dry, then place chicken in a single layer in the slow cooker. Whisk together the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour over the chicken. Flip the chicken so that both sides are coated with the liquid sauce. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  • Shred the chicken inside the slow cooker in order for the meat to soak up the sauce. Remove from the sauce.
  • Spoon off any fat from the top of the sauce. When ready to use, transfer to a small pan and simmer over medium heat until it thickens a little bit, 10-15 minutes. If prepping in advance, transfer the sauce to a storage container and reheat when ready to enjoy. *


* It's important to store the sauce separately as it's needed only for meal #1. Meal #2 and #3 will use just the chicken.
