slow cooker honey garlic chicken

Ok, so clearly I’m developing a problem. All I seem to be cooking is chicken. I will try a different protein….eventually.

Now down to business. I found this recipe at Damn Delicious, it was honestly one of the easiest things ever! You can head to their site for the exact directions, which I can’t seem to follow because, well, I’m cheap and lazy.

In any case, here’s my version:

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 16 ounces baby red potatoes, quartered
  • 16 ounces baby carrots

 

For the sauce

  • 3/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

First, I trimmed the chicken a bit, cut my potatoes, and dumped my carrots in the crock pot. Then I mixed everything into a bowl, loaded everything into the crockpot and poured the mixture over top. I was tight on time so instead of doing 8hours on low, I did 3.5 on high. The recipe also says that you can throw in green beans in the last half hour, which I would have done if mine were still good…but alas, they weren’t.

The recipe recommends basting every hour. I on the other hand tried to space it out a little, and actually flipped my chicken about halfway through.

It. Was. Yum! The chicken pulled apart, the carrots were soft but not mushy, and the potatoes were actually cooked through. I’m glad I did the quarters though, because while they were good, the inside was definitely a little hard.

For my Kalydeco kids, there’s nearly 25g of fat in one serving! Yeah, you heard me! So it’s a healthy alternative, with more than enough fat for a pill!

Next time, I’ll try to broil the tops a bit before hand and get it all crunchy too. mmmmmmmmmm
