Slow Cooker Sticky Garlic Chicken

I love dinners that I can throw in the slow cooker in the morning, and have ready to go, by the time I get home to eat. This recipe isn't your average slow cooker recipe. It is so tangy, and full of delicious flavor and texture. You are going to need to try this one.

My husband can be a little picky when it comes to chicken from the slow cooker.  I knew I had to change his mind, so I whipped up this Slow Cooker Sticky Garlic Chicken and it did the trick.

This recipe is so quick and easy and tastes amazing. It is one of our new family favorites. It is so simple and requires only a few ingredients you probably already have at home.

I love how sweet and tangy the sauce is. It goes perfectly over rice, or you could just eat it, as is. If you have picky eaters, you need to make this recipe for them. They will love it. My kids ask for seconds every time.

how to make slow cooker sticky garlic chicken

Step 1: Heat olive oil in a pan over medium high heat.

Step 2: Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper, and place in heated oil. Let cook on a few minutes on each side until just browned.

Step 3: Place seared chicken thighs in slow cooker.

Step 4: Whisk together soy sauce, ketchup, honey, minced garlic, ginger, sriracha and lime juice. Pour over chicken.

Step 5: Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Step 6: Serve over cooked rice and garnish with chopped cilantro.

COuld I use Chicken Breasts instead of chicken thighs?

You could use chicken breasts in this recipe, but I think the chicken thighs make all the difference. They are much more tender and absorb the flavor a little better than a chicken breast.

Can you cook it on high for less time?

You most definitely could cook this on high for less time. If you do cook it on high in your slow cooker, cook it for 3-4 hours.

We recommend cooking it on low, for a longer amount of time. Chicken is most tender when it is cooked low and slow. However, it will still taste delicious on high, with a shorter cook time.

what could I serve as a side dish?

Whenever we make this Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken, I like to make some type of vegetable. You are always safe with a salad, like our Seven Layered Green Salad.

We also love this dish with our Parmesan Peas, or our Oven Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower. They both tastes delicious when you combine it with your rice and sticky chicken.

You could also add a more fruity side dish like our favorite, Layered Strawberry Jell-O Salad.
