How to make slow cooker honey chicken

This recipe really is so simple and only requires 5 basic ingredients for the sauce that I’m sure you already have in your pantry:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (I like to use low-sodium)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

All you need to do is mix those ingredients together, add a little salt and pepper and pour over the chicken. Then you let the slow cooker do all the work.

Slow cooker honey chicken variations

We love to serve this honey soy chicken over rice or quinoa, but it also taste great in lettuce wraps or over a salad. To top it off you can add sesame seeds and sliced green onions on top. Sometimes with the leftover chicken we’ll even make tacos or nachos. The possibilities are endless.
