This Multi-Cooker Sesame Ginger Chicken will save you from spending too much on takeout, and will make you run back for seconds, even thirds! It’s a simple homemade sesame-ginger sauce that will cook with the chicken all day (or for a few minutes if you choose the stovetop option!). At the end of the cooking cycle, you can swirl in some cornstarch to thicken up the sauce.

I love a good fakeout-takeout meal! Especially one that’s bursting with flavor and has cooked itself all day on the slow cook mode.

This is best made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs, but you could use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or a mix of the two, as well.
