Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

My daughter does not like rice.  I am trying every way I can to cook it so she will eat it.  I have tried brown rice, white rice, rice mixes.  I have cooked it with spices, chicken stock, beef stock and tried putting stuff like corn, peppers, onions in it.  She will grudgingly eats a bit of it so I am do not push it.  She eats her veggies and protein so I really can’t complain.

But, I tend to cook quite a few dishes with rice in them so I guess she will get over it eventually.

I found this recipe for Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken on Who Needs a   The original recipe called for chicken thighs and drumsticks but all I had were chicken breasts.  My chicken shredded but I also left it in the slow cooker for almost 9 hours.  I love these fix it and forget it dishes!


My daughter actually ate two servings of the chicken and a bit of the rice with the sauce over it.  It was a nice flavorful dish.  Both kids really liked the sauce saying it was sweet but different.

I served this dish with a side of steamed broccoli and a plate of cut up vegetables.  This would also be good mixed with steamed vegetables.


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey barbecue sauce, I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Spray the inside of your slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  2. Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Mix spices, soy sauce, ketchup, barbecue sauce, and honey in a small bowl. Pour the barbecue mixture over chicken.
  4. Cook on low 6-8 hours.  Allow mixture to cool a bit before serving.
