Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

March 3, 2022Teresa

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken really turned out delicious. I was looking for ways to use up some chicken thighs I had in my freezer and stumbled upon this recipe. I ended up making a batch with boneless chicken thighs and another with boneless chicken breasts. Both turned out extraordinarily well.

Follow Me On Instagram!

I made several different chicken dishes for an Empty Nesters potluck back in January. Along with this recipe, I brought a Chicken Thighs with Garlic Parmesan Sauce and a Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken Thighs. I like bringing main dishes to potlucks especially ones that are not pasta-based, since everyone always brings that. Besides the guys always seem to like meat and potatoes so chicken recipes always go over really well.

We had a little left over and John and I ate it for leftovers afterwards. I thought the taste of the sauce was really excellent. Plus, this is so easy since it’s made in the slow cooker. Let me just suggest one thing. Don’t go strictly by the time. I found that my chicken was ready before the specified time on the recipe – even in my slowest crockpot. So keep checking it. Boneless chicken thighs may be ready in about two or two-and-a-half hours. Boneless chicken breasts will be ready in 3 hours or less. If you know your crockpot runs hot, check it sooner!

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken is terrific teamed up with rice. Mine had a wild rice and quinoa blend. It was wonderful with it. I added Roasted Italian Tomatoes as a side, but a salad or other veggie will work fine too. One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s so easy to assemble. Stir the sauce together and then add the chicken. Can’t be any easier than that!

If you enjoy an Asian flair to your chicken dishes, this one is easy, tasty and filling. Even your kids will like this scrumptious chicken entree. You can always get creative and add some egg rolls or pot stickers. Yum. Regardless, it’s a delightful way to enjoy chicken.

Here, I’ve done the same thing with chicken breasts.

Cover with lid and cook on low setting about 2 1/2 hours for boneless chicken thighs and about 3 hours for boneless chicken breasts, or until done.

(Boneless chicken breasts and boneless chicken thighs cook much more quickly than bone-in chicken pieces. Adjust cooking time accordingly. Your chicken thighs may be done in 2 1/2 hours unless you pack a lot of them in the sauce.)

Instructions
  1. Place half of the green onions, all of the ginger, garlic, rice wine vinegar, oyster sauce, soy sauce, butter and honey in a crockpot.
  2. Whisk thoroughly.
  3. Carefully place chicken pieces in the sauce, turning the pieces over a couple of times to coat well.
  4. Cover with lid and cook approximately 3-4 hours on low setting (this is for bone-in chicken).
  5. If chicken pieces are extra thick, they may take the full 4 hours, chicken thighs will be done in three hours or less. Boneless chicken breasts and chicken thighs will be done in 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  6. During the last 30 minutes of cooking time, combine cornstarch and water until dissolved.
  7. Stir cornstarch mixture into sauce.
  8. Heat thoroughly an additional 30 minutes.
  9. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
  10. Garnish with sesame seeds and remaining green onions.
  11. Serve over hot, cooked rice.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Be very careful not to overcook the chicken. Boneless chicken breasts or thighs cook more quickly than bone-in chicken pieces.

NOTE: This can also be made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. There’s enough sauce for about 8 chicken breasts.

NOTE: Because the sauce contains oyster sauce or hoisin sauce, this recipe is not gluten free.
