1 Tbsp vegetable oil
cup hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp soy sauce

Directions:
1. In a mixing bowl add the chicken and cornstarch Toss until the chicken is completely coated in the cornstarch. In a medium sized skillet over medium high heat add oil and cook the chicken until the chicken is lightly brown but not cooked throughout Put in the bottom a a slow cooker.

2. In a small mixing bowl whisk together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, rice wine vinegar sesame oil, ginger and crushed red pepper. Pour on top of chicken in the slow cooker.

3. Cook on low heat for 3-4 hours or until chicken is cooked throughout -- SEE NOTE

4. Serve over rice and garnish with green onions, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes if desired.

NOTE: (I don't make it this way - but another option)
If you are cooking the chicken without browning in the skillet first, when the chicken is finished cooking, remove the chicken and add 1 Tbsp cornstarch to the sauce. Add the chicken back to the crockpot and cook for an additional 15 minutes until the sauce thickens up. Chicken could also take longer to cook, closer to 4 hours.
