Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken is an easy weeknight dinner with juicy chicken slow cooked in a flavorful sweet and spicy Asian garlic sauce.
One of my favorite dishes when I was growing up was anything with honey garlic sauce. My mom made the BEST honey garlic chicken wings and it was always such a treat whenever we had them for dinner.
It was always a hit and one of those lip smacking clean your plate meals.
So the other night, I decided to make my favorite childhood dish into the slow cooker. With two small kiddos, I am always trying to find every excuse to toss everything into the slow cooker for an easy and fuss-free dinner.
And you guys!!! The results were absolutely amazing!
Tender shredded chicken breasts are tossed in a tangy sweet sauce made with honey, garlic, and soy sauce.
The sauce is killer yummy and will leave you wanting to just drink it all up. The secret ingredients in here are the hoisin sauce, balsamic glaze and Thai sweet chili sauce.
It gives the dish an added depth of flavor that resembles your favorite local Chinese restaurant, except so much better and healthier. I also highly recommend adding in some crushed red pepper flakes or sriracha but if you’re not fan of heat, then feel free to leave them out.
So next time, skip the takeout and whip up this Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken with minimal effort.
