This Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes. It’s one of the best crock pot recipes for chicken out there.
This weekend, I was flipping through my recipe pile and came across this recipe. I was looking for something new to use boneless, skinless chicken breast (a staple in our house) for. I really liked the combination of the garlic, fresh ginger (which I LOVE) and soy sauce. Plus, it utilized the slow cooker — even better! I must be on a crock pot kick this week…this is the second recipe I’ve made using this trusted appliance! It’s just easy and convenient. So, why not?!?!
This recipe is very easy and very good! I mixed the ingredients to the sauce together earlier in the week and stored them in the fridge. Then when I was ready to make the dish, I just added it to the slow cooker. I love dished that I can pre-assemble a few days in advance!
I served the chicken and the sweet Asian inspired sauce over brown rice with a side of broccoli. I will definitely be making this again. And again. And again!
If you end up trying this recipe (which I highly recommend you do!) post your results here! I would love to hear how you made out!
This recipe would make a perfect freeze-ahead slow cooker meal! Just put all of the ingredients together in a zip top bag and stash it in the freezer. Then, when you’re ready to make it, simply thaw the package overnight in the fridge, put it in your slow cooker and cook according to the directions.
