Sesame Ginger Chicken

This first time I had this dish was at a Tupperware party hosted by my mom's good friend. I was home from college and dragged there. Leaving this party with the recipe for Sesame Ginger chicken made the hours of small town gossip worth it. This dish is super easy and makes great leftovers.
Something about quick and simple crock pot meals makes me happy. I stick everything in, plug in, turn on, walk away. I can do that, even on a busy day. 
Then look at it cooking through the glass, covered in saucy goodness! If I have fresh ginger on hand, I will finely grate some into this. Also I usually double the sauce just because I like it. I really HATE when my food touches. I seriously hate it. This is one dish that I will accept when my chicken is over my rice. I also like it with broccoli on the side, not mixed in.
