Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

This has to be up there with my most favorite crockpot recipes!  The flavor of this sauce is amazing.  And the smell of it cooking in my house all day is the best!  It is so easy to throw together.  The whole family loves this recipe, even the picky eater.

  10. rookie cook quesiton: are the chicken breasts uncooked when you put them in the crock pot? Sorry, I’m new. 🙂

    • You can do both! I usually throw them in frozen with all of my chicken crockpot recipes. Obviously takes a little longer to cook. When I cooked these this time, I used fresh and cut them into cubes. It cooked really fast… like in 3 hours! Whatever you choose, I would just check it after 3 hours! 🙂

  11. Hi there. How about linking this in to Food on Friday: Slow Cooker? Cheers

  13. If you use the pineapple, what do you do with the reserved juice?

  14. Hi Alyssa,
    What a wonderful pics of Honey Garlic Chicken you have here.
    Perhaps you’re interested to submit your food photos on a food photography site that has tagline “Food Photography that will make you hungry” :)
    It’s free to submit, free to join, and a lot of members can enjoy your creation!

  15. What do you do with reserved pineapple juice?

    • You just don’t add the juice to it. My 4 year old drank it because he loves pineapple juice! 🙂

      • Ok…… sorry, but that’s still confusing. The recipe says to reserve the juice, but then in brackets you say you didn’t use the pineapple, so then why is pineapple listed as an ingredient if you’re not using either the juice or the fruit? Sorry, just a little to ambiguous for a novice cook like me! 🙂

  16. This looks yummy, and I’ve been looking for more slow cooker recipes to try, so thank you for this recipe! I, too, am confused by the pineapple in the list of ingredients. Would you mind letting us know what the reserved juice is for and when you use it, please? Thanks so much.
