Servings 5
Author Ang Paris


  • 1-1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 cups honey
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow pepper
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons minced garlic about 3 cloves
  • 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 3 Tablespoons water
  • 3 large carrots chopped
  • Sesame seeds and Scallions for garnish optional


  • Whisk together the tomato paste, rice wine vinegar, honey, and soy sauce until smooth.
  • Add in the diced vegetables and minced garlic. Add red pepper flakes, if desired.
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and add to the slow cooker.
  • Set the slow cooker on low to cook for 5 hours.
  • 30 minutes before serving, add the carrots and remove the chicken. Use two forks to pull it apart. Return to the slow cooker.
  • In a small dish, make a slurry with cornstarch and water. This will thicken the sauce.
  • Turn the heat up to high for 30 minutes.
  • Serve over rice with a garnish of sesame seeds and scallions if desired.


Note: You could add the carrots to the pot, but I find that they get too mushy for my taste.
