In a large crockpot, stir together the maple syrup, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, garlic, onion powder, and barbecue sauce. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, or until chicken is tender and a thermometer inserted into the chicken registers 165 degrees. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
