Slow Cooker Honey Chicken

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new recipe – not by by design, but more a result of adjusting to new schedules and finding the time to actually write a post.  I hope to get back to posting on a more regular schedule soon.  Thanks for sticking around during the lean times!

Today I have a quick and easy slow cooker recipe for you.  Slow Cooker Honey Chicken is a hit with the Teens and adults in my house.  I realize this dish doesn’t look very “special”, but you are going to have to trust me on this one.  Even The Girl (who isn’t a huge fan of meat) loves this dish, going so far as to hide the tiny cup of leftovers in the back of the refrigerator so no one else would eat them (true!). I need to start doubling this recipe, because we almost polished off the entire dish the last time I made it.  You only need to whip up a batch of rice, add a salad and some fruit, and you have a full meal on the dinner table in no time.

  2. This sounds really good! I wonder if I could make a big batch and freeze half of it for a future meal? Thanks for the recipe – I am going to try this one.

    • I bet it would keep in the freezer for a little bit, Vickie. I haven’t done so yet, but I have frozen similar dishes with good results. Come back & update if you do freeze some.
