Slow cooker honey chicken is one of my favorite crockpot chicken recipes that’s quick, flavorful and absolutely delicious. It comes out perfectly tender every time!
I love to have lots of quick and easy slow cooker recipes on hand, especially for those busy weeknights! This dish is one of my go-to’s, along with crockpot lasagna, slow cooker taco bowls and chicken enchilada soup.
If you know me, you know that I’m all about quick and easy DELICIOUS recipes! And this slow cooker honey garlic chicken is one of those recipes. The sauce 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. ;)
Honey garlic sauce
The sauce is the star of the show! It’s sweet, flavorful and has a hint of Chinese flavor from the soy sauce. All of the ingredients are simple fridge and pantry staples that you likely already have on hand.
This dish is also pretty healthy as well. You can cut back on the honey to make it even more healthy. I love to use low sodium soy sauce too.
- Soy sauce
- Olive oil
- Onion powder
- Minced garlic
