Honey & Soy Sauce Chicken, Slow Cooker

The theme for Monday posts in February is Slow Cooker.

The excitement of fall vegetables is long past, the holidays are long over, and winter is still stretching out in front of us.

It’s time for easy comfort food.

I rarely do any prep work for my slow cooker recipes.

Sometimes I brown the meat first but more often I don’t bother.

I always give it a stir about an hour before it’s done to make sure the flavors are combined.

As usual, all recipes are for two.

Honey & Soy Sauce Chicken, Slow Cooker

This is an intensely flavored sauce – drizzle a bit over rice for your side dish. This recipe serves 3 rather than my usual 2.

  1. Looks delicious! I would eat this in a heartbeat, but I would have to debone it all before my husband would eat it. :/ He’s too picky.

    • Not even chicken with bones? Mine refuses fish with bones but is fine with meat. Well, he also doesn’t like rabbit because it’s too bony.
      I use to bone chicken breasts back when that was the only way to get a boneless chicken breast but I have never done thighs – getting lazy. I can’t buy boneless thighs.
