I tried this recipe for the first time last night, with a few tweaks to the original ingredients to suit our tastes. It turned out really good. I liked it a lot. The guys liked it, but like anything different, they had suggestions to make it more to their liking.

How To Make crockpot honey chicken

  • 1
    Remove any skin or fat from chicken. Place chicken in crockpot and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides.
  • 2
    In a medium sized bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, onion and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine well. Pour over chicken in the crockpot.
  • 3
    Cook on low for 3 - 4 hours or high for 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours. I cooked on low for 4 1/2 hours.

    When you have 1/2 hr time remaining, remove chicken from crockpot and cut into chunks. Prior to putting the chicken back in the crockpot, combine some cornstarch (about a tbls)with cold water and whisk it into the crockpot to thicken the sauce a bit.
  • 5
    (optional) Cut up the peppers and add to the pot. Add 1 small snack serving of pineapple chunks, drained. Mix through chicken and cover and let for remaining time.

    Set crockpot on warm while you prepare your side. Serve hot over a bed of white rice (optional)and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top (optional)
