Slow Cooker Orange Sesame Chicken and Noodles
by Jennifer, Slow Cooker Gourmet
You might be thinking there’s no way this is an easy meal, but it’s actually so simple to pull together! Some chicken tossed with a little cornstarch and then browned up for a few minutes creates a perfect crispy crust that stands up to slow cooking (seriously!).

Cut chicken into large bite sized pieces. Add to a large plastic zippered bag along with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch. Shake to coat chicken well with cornstarch.
In a large skillet over medium high to high heat add canola oil. Test one piece of chicken to ensure oil is hot enough (should sizzle when added) and add remaining chicken.
Sear for 4-6 minutes (depending on thickness) on each side until light golden brown.
Transfer to slow cooker.
In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (except for noodles) including the other 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to make the sauce.
Pour the sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 until chicken is fully cooked through.
Add Reames® frozen egg noodles and stir to combine and coat with sauce. Cover and return slow cooker to high heat for another 30-40 minutes or until noodles are fully cooked.
