stephanie o'dea honey garlic chickenThis is an easy slow cooker recipe for chicken thighs in a sauce made with soy sauce, ketchup, and honey.

Ingredients :

  • 1 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

Preparation :

  • 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. 
  • The Verdict. 
  • 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 fast morning plug-in.Enjoy!
