1 Comment on Honey Garlic Chicken (For Crock Pot)

  1. I made this for supper tonight. It turned out great! however, I did change/omit a few ingredients. In addition to Ketchup, soy sauce, honey and garlic, I added some onion powder and ginger powder, black pepper. I also added in some Fillipino style BBQ sauce (used Mita’s Kitchen Brand). I left out the sesame seeds and didn’t use any type of italian spice (such as oregano, basil, parsley). I did put the chopped green onions on top when serving. I didn’t have to thicken the sauce with a cornstarch slurry. However, I doubled the recipe as I had a package of 12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I have a big 8 qt crockpot (must be 25 years old that still works great). It only took 3-l/2 hrs on low and they were done perfect. So moist and tender. This is the first time I’ve ever cooked chicken thighs in a crockpot. I served over plain white rice with a side of frozen asian style vegetables which I doctored up a bit with some asian seasoning. This recipe is a keeper, am going to start making more chicken recipes in the crockkpot from now on.
