Recipe type: Slow cooker
  1. In a small bowl mix Tamari soy sauce, honey, garlic, coconut oil (melted) and salt and pepper and whisk quickly with a fork. Raw honey is quite thick so it takes a little bit of whisking to ensure it is a runny consistency.
  2. Slice chicken breasts in half width wise and place into the slow cooker.
  3. Pour honey mixture onto the chicken and then cook on low for 3-4 hours, or high for 2 hours.
  4. If you wish to serve with rice, start cooking this 15 minutes before the chicken is due to finish cooking.
  5. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and place it into a large dish. Keep the slow cooker turned on and make sure it is on high.
  6. In a glass or small bowl add the arrowroot and water and mix well. Pour this into the slow cooker and stir well. To ensure the sauce thickens leave the sauce to cook for about 10 minutes, Stir about three times during this cooking process to make sure it thickens evenly.
  7. While the sauce is cooking, use two forks and shred the chicken.
  8. To serve place rice on a plate, add the chicken and then spoon some of the sauce from the slow cooker onto the chicken
  9. Finely chop the spring onions and sprinkle on the chicken. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds, serve and enjoy!
