Slow Cooker Chicken Garlic Honey Recipe

  • This recipe for honey garlic chicken in a slow cooker couldn’t be simpler! Simply place the chicken in the crock pot, cover it with sauce, and cook for around five hours. It would be fantastic if you added sesame seeds or onions.

 

  • I prefer to shred the chicken with two forks once it has cooked. It breaks easily since it is so delicate. For all slow cooker chicken recipes, if you are using frozen chicken, be careful to defrost it thoroughly before cooking.

Ingredients

 

  • In a slow cooker, boneless, skinless chicken thighs are ideal since dark meat is more forgiving when cooked for extended periods of time. Moreover, thighs do not dry up as quickly. Should you have a preference for chicken breasts, make sure to check them toward the end to ensure they are not dried up and overcooked. My biggest piece of advice for making this honey garlic chicken in a slow cooker is that! The recipe card has the items listed below.

  • Boneless Chicken Thighs: I prefer chicken thighs over breasts, but chicken breasts can be used in this recipe. Chicken thighs are a soft and tender meat with a little more fat on them making them juicy too.

 

  • Honey: Choose the honey that you prefer, but this will help sweeten the chicken while it is slow cooking.

  • Soy Sauce: Light soy sauce is just what you need to make this slow cooker chicken infused with.

 

  • Hoisin Sauce: With its thick and strong flavor, this hoisin sauce will be the perfect amount of sauce to cover the chicken and marinate while it is slowly being cooked.

  • Garlic: Crush the best that you can, or purchase the garlic crushed in a bag.

 

  • Ginger Root: Fresh is best with the ginger.

  • Sesame Oil: This has a nutty oil that adds just the right touch to combine the flavorings together.

 

  • Cornstarch: Make a roux or thick sauce with the cornstarch and water mixture.

  • Water: Luke’s warm water is perfect for creating a roux and adding it back into the sauce to cover the chicken at the end.
