Crock Pot Honey Chicken

Remember last month's Secret Recipe Club post, when I made the chocolate banana fake ice cream? Remember how I mentioned that there were tons of other recipes on that blog that looked awesome?  I wanted to share one of them with you, since my family really loved it.

While it's nice to prepare and cook a big, full dinner, there is also something really nice about a delicious, easy dinner.  Like, one that requires only a couple of minutes and as very, very few dishes.  Like this awesome honey chicken.

How easy is it?

Just put all of the ingredients in a bowl...

...and let your nearest sous chef whisk it all together.

Then just pour the sauce over some chicken right in the crock pot. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.  After three hours, when the meat is cooked through, just cut or shred it and toss it with the sauce in the crock pot.

And that's it.

And it's absolutely delicious.

We will definitely be making this again.

Honey Chicken
(from Join us, pull up a chair)

2 chicken breasts (approximately 1 lb of chicken) (I used 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup  soy sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion
1/8 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (I omitted these)

Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper and place into a slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil and garlic. Pour this mixture over the chicken. Cook on low for 3 hours.

After 3 hours remove chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces. Return back to the slow cookerand toss in the sauce to coat. Serve with rice or noodles.
