Skinny Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken

My 4 year old ate this and loved it.  Ya know, the one that says everything I make is horrible!?  This is one of those meals that are slow cooking all day and it smells so delicious you already know you love it.   This was uh-mazing.  I wish I would have discovered this recipe sooner.  The chicken was so moist and the first bite was so flavorful and delicious!  And I love that this recipe only has 313 calories per serving!  Delicious, easy, and good for you!  Score!
