    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 crockpot meals on hand, especially for those busy weeknights! This recipe is one of my go-to’s, along with crockpot lasagna, slow cooker taco bowls, chicken enchilada soup and slow cooker ribs.

    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 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. I love to use low sodium soy sauce too. So easy, yummy and one of my go-to healthy crockpot recipes.


    The ingredients are so simple! I usually always have them on hand, which is why this is one of my favorite crockpot chicken recipes. Just throw them all in the crockpot and let it do all the work for you.

    • Chicken breasts
    • Soy sauce
    • Honey
    • Olive oil
    • Onion powder
    • Minced garlic
    • Kosher salt
    • Pepper
