Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken


I love cooking in my slow cooker. When I have a busy day it feels so good to have supper waiting for me when I get done. This Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken just fell apart after 5 hours of cooking on low. It tastes just like the name says, sweet from the honey and garlicky. There is plenty of liquid which is great over rice or mixed in with the chicken.




Put the chicken in the slow cooker.

Peel and slice the onions. Place the sliced onions on top of the chicken breasts.


Place the rest of the ingredients into a small bowl.

Whisk together until combined.

Pour over the top of the chicken and onions.


Cook on low for 5-6 hours.

Check it at 5 hours and try to pull apart the chicken with two forks.

If it is cooked through and tender turn off slow cooker.

Top with green onion slices and sesame seeds.
