{Crock Pot} Honey Garlic Chicken




My new love affair with my crock pot continues!   This recipe is actually for baked chicken wings, but, I gave it a whirl with my crock pot instead.  That was a very good decision.  This chicken is tender, juicy, has a little sweetness to it (which my kids love) and a little heat with the hot  pepper sauce.  But, not too hot for the kids or Mr Plain.  We served this with a side of my Chicken Rice.  They went great together.  But, you could also pair this up with noodles, plain rice or serve it on a sandwich with a nice slice of cheese.  Very tasty!



Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken

Ingredients:
1 1/4 lb boneless chicken breast
1/2 cup steak sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce

Directions:
Spray crock pot with non stick cooking spray.  Place chicken in pot.  In a mixing bowl, mix steak sauce, honey garlic powder and hot pepper sauce.  Mix well. Pour over chicken.  Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.  Shred chicken and let it marinate in sauce for the last 1/2 hour of cooking.

  13. What kind of steak sauce do you use for this recipe? Heinz 57, A1, something else all together?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Julie- I used a store brand steak sauce, it tasted just like A1, but, a bit cheaper :) A1 or Heinz 57 would work great.

  17. Hey Erin! I notice you say to spray the Crock Pot with cooking spray. Have you tried the Crock Pot Liners? They are GREAT! Especially with anything that is sticky like the honey in this recipe. You will find them next to the Oven Bags in the Ziploc section of your store.

    Thanks for this recipe, too.

    1. Hi Billie, I just recently heard of the crock pot liners. I never realized they existed before! I am going to grab some and give them a try though. Anything to make clean up easier :)
      Thanks for the tip and stopping by. Hope you enjoy the chicken.

  18. Hmm, do you think you could sub something for the hot pepper sauce? I don't have it on hand. :(

    1. You could use 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. Anything with a bit of heat.

  19. Would this be tender enough if you decided to not shred the meat?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi- Yes, it is tender before shredding. I usually shred it, it just a bit easy to serve for us and easier for sandwiches if we would want them.

  20. Wondering if you could make this with boneless pork chops..

    1. I haven't tried it with pork chops, but, I'm sure it would work out..if you give it a try, please let me know!

  21. Hi Erin. Just found your site through my Slow Cooker site. Can not wait to try this chicken. I will not shred. I am sure this will work with pork chops. I am 76 and only discovered the many uses for crock pots last year. I used to make beef stew in it but now I use it for everything. Great blog.
