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.

  2. ok shut up- YOU are gorgeous! thanks for stopping by my blog and joining! i’m thrilled to have found you and your recipes. and thanks for this delicious recipe- tomorrow nights dinner!

    1. 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! 🙂

      1. 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! 🙂

  4. 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.
