Honey Garlic Chicken Slow Cooker

Honey Garlic Chicken Slow Cooker



  • 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (4 or one thigh per family member)

    3 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped

    1 teaspoon dried basil

    1/2 cup soy sauce (La Choy or Tamari wheat-free are gluten free)

    1/2 cup ketchup

    1/3 cup honey

Total Time
45 min


Use a 4-quart slow cooker (if using a 6-quart, this will cook faster. Check after 3 hours on high, 5 hours on low).

Put the chicken into your cooker. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, then pour evenly over the top.

Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3-4 (I'd go with low).

Serve with basmati rice and steamed or roasted vegetables.

My kids adore this chicken. The ketchup and honey taste a bit like barbecue sauce, but slightly more tart. The basil gives it a different, herby flavor which I like a lot. If you are into freezer meals, this is a great candidate--- load all the ingredients into a freezer bag (raw chicken, the sauce ingredients) and then freeze. Thaw the bag overnight in the fridge, then plop the ingredients into your cooker for a fastmorning plug-in.
