Honey Garlic Chicken

Happy Friday everyone!! Danny and I officially leave for DC in 3 weeks, can't wait!! Well, here is a quick and easy crockpot recipe for you guys. My crockpot cooks a little faster then normal so I cooked the chicken on low for only 4 hours. The sauce is so so good!

source: adapted slightly from Croutons and Cupcakes

  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
  • teaspoons soy sauce
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • chicken legs-thighs or breasts

  • Directions

    Place the chicken in the bottom of a 4-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, dry mustard, salt and honey. Pour over the chicken and cover.

    Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. Be sure to check the chicken periodically. My chicken was done after 5 hours on low. Remove chicken, place on a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Transfer the remaining sauce to a saucepan and reduce down over medium heat until desired consistency is reached. I mixed a teaspoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of water and added it to the sauce and continued to stir and cook on medium heat until it thickened up a bit.

    Serve a little sauce over the chicken and garnish with fresh basil.

    Serve chicken over rice with some broccoli or green beans on the side.

    Enjoy !!
