I love slow cooker recipes that I can just throw everything in in the morning, and let the slow cooker do the work!  This chicken is moist and flavorful.  Both my picky eaters devoured it and I am sure your family will too!


Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken Recipe:
(Makes 6 servings)

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (mine were frozen)
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup white distilled vinegar
1/4 cup Sprite or lemon lime soda
3 Tablespoons minced garlic
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons corn starch

Place chicken breasts in slow cooker.  Combine all other ingredients, except corn starch, in a bowl and pour over chicken.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred in another bowl.  Whisk corn starch in liquid in the slow cooker.  Add shredded chicken back to the crock pot.  Serve over rice.  If desired, garnish with sesame seeds.

    Have you ever tried making this with chicken thighs, drumsticks or a whole chicken? Just wondering how it would work

      I made this yesterday with boneless skinless thighs, it was a little on the greased side. Next time I will use chicken breast. It was good and I could see where kids would love it, next time I’m going to throw in a few red pepper flakes.

    I’m sorry, but this did not taste good. It was too strong a flavour. And once I added the cornstarch, the chicken tasted chalky. The picture looks good and the ingredients were easy so I made it today… Very disappointed… Your site usually has great recipes.

    I just started a new job not long ago and I love it!! My problem is that i now work only 4 days a week but they are 9 – 91/2 hour days. Is it ok to leave something on low in the crockpot that long? my husband says not, but what do you girls think?

  4. sandy says:

    I recently started a new job that I am gone from home for 9 – 9 1/2 hours a day. For chicken and other recipes that are done on low for 6-8 hours, would it be ok to leave it for 10 hours (includes driving time)
    love that I found your site. everything looks so good.

      Hi Sandy! You have a long day! It should be ok on low for about 10 hours. I would add a little more of the lemon lime soda so that it doesn’t dry out. Just need to be sure you have enough liquid, but then you don’t want it swimming. Best of luck with this.

    I made this recipe today to kick off my Spring Cleaning New Recipe Challenge on my blog. This is the first recipe that I’ve prepared in the Crock Pot that my husband has liked and said was okay to make again. I am also including the Monterey Chicken recipe that’s posted on here, as well. Thank you for posting the first Crock Pot recipe that I’ve made that my husband has actually liked!
