If you know me, I’m all about quick and easy DELICIOUS recipes! This slow cooker honey chicken is one of those recipes. The chicken has such a unique flavor and leaves your family begging for more! They’ll think you slaved all day in the kitchen. Shh! Don’t tell. They don’t have to know it only took you five minutes to make. ;) This dish is also pretty healthy as well. You can cut back on the honey to make it even more healthy. It’s one of our family’s new favorite recipes!
3 large frozen chicken breasts (if your's are thawed, adjust cooking time)
1/2 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup honey
1 TB olive oil
1 tsp onion powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup sesame seed (optional)
1 cup quinoa (cooked according to package directions) - could substitute with rice
Place chicken breasts in a crock pot. Combine soy sauce, honey, olive oil, onion powder, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir until combined. Pour sauce over chicken. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until the chicken easily falls apart.
Serve chicken over cooked quinoa. Add extra sauce from the crock pot on top and add sesame seeds for show.
