Szechuan BBQ Chicken with Sesame Ginger Rice- A Lean & Green Crock Pot Recipe

1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (or 1 1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts)

1 Tablespoon (1 capful)  Stacey Hawkins Honey BBQ Seasoning   (or 4 Tablespoons sugar-free BBQ Sauce)

1 Tablespoon (1 capful) Stacey Hawkins Wok On Seasoning (or other Asian seasoning from your local grocer that is an approved condiment)


2 cups riced cauliflower

1 Tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Toasted Sesame Ginger Seasoning (or fresh grated ginger, spicy red pepper flakes, garlic, salt, pepper and toasted sesame seeds)


  1. Add chicken to slow cooker.  In my case, I forgot to take it out the night before, so I put it in frozen.  First, however, I ran some cool water over the chicken so I could break the thighs into pieces so they fit in the slow cooker.IMG_7896
  2. Sprinkle the seasonings over the chicken. IMG_7897 2
  3. Cover with the lid and cook for 6-8 hours on low.  When ready, remove the cover and using 2 forks, shred the chicken into pieces. Cover with the lid and reduce heat to warm while you’re making the cauliflower rice.IMG_7911
  4. To make the rice, simply stir the Toasted Sesame Ginger seasoning into the riced cauliflower and then steam or microwave according to package directions.IMG_7912Place the chicken over the rice and serve hot.
