Slow Cooker Honey Chicken


Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  After a busy weekend, sometimes you just need an easy meal to make on Sunday night.  If you need a simple summer recipe for dinner, this slow cooker honey chicken is great if you don't want to use the stove top or oven.  There are only a few ingredients and everything gets mixed into one bowl.  I love easy cleanup meals!  I served this honey chicken over white rice with a side of garlicky french green beans with slicked almonds.



Slow Cooker Honey Chicken

Ingredients
1 pound skinless chicken thighs, 4 pieces (You can use chicken breasts instead.)
1/3 cup honey
½ cup soy sauce (I used a low sodium soy sauce.)
½ cup ketchup
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of your favorite seasoning (I used Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute.)


Directions

In a bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, and garlic.


Add chicken to honey mixture.  Pour into slow cooker.


 
Cook on low for 6 hours, until chicken is cooked through.

 
Serve over rice.

 
Serves 4.
