Paleo Spicy Orange Chicken

Active Prep Time: 25min
Inactive Prep Time: 4hrs

2lbs Fresh (not frozen) Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs
1/3C Coconut Aminos
1/3C Honey
1/2C Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
2T Tomato Paste
3T Toasted Sesame oil
1T Minced Garlic
3/4t Salt
1/4t Cracked Black Pepper
Sesame seeds

Place all chicken thighs in crock pot. In a small bowl mix coconut aminos, honey, orange juice, tomato paste, sesame oil, garlic, sea salt, and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken and cook in crockpot on low for 4 hours.  Once finished cooking remove chicken from pot and cut into cubes.  Remove sauce from pot and place in a saucepan over medium heat. Let simmer for 20 minutes until it has reduced by half and is thick and shiny. Toss cubed chicken in thickened sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve by itself or with Cauli Rice or Black Bean Pasta (you can find this at Whole Foods and possibly Central Market)!
