I have always loved to cook! Cooking is relaxing and calming for me, and I enjoy every moment of it. I am always on the go, and it is nice to prep meals before work and utilize my crock pot. Crock pot honey garlic chicken is not only easy to make, but it’s delicious!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs)
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup honey
- ¼ cup hoisin sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tbs rice wine vinegar
- 4 minced garlic cloves
- 1 tsp ginger
- 2 scallions (1 for cooking and 1 for garnish)
- 1 tbs corn starch
- Sesame seeds
First whisk together the following ingredients: soy sauce, honey, ginger, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, minced garlic cloves, & half the scallions. I normally use all fresh ingredients but I recently tried Spice World Squeeze Ginger. I found it in the refrigerator isle in the grocery store, and it honestly tastes fresh, without the hassle of fresh ginger. Pour the mixture over the whole chicken breasts and cook on low in a crock pot for 2-3 hours. After the chicken comes out of the crock pot, let it rest for a few minutes before shredding it. I use The Original Bear Paws Shredder Claws to shred my meat. They are an Amazon’s Choice product that I absolutely love! Now time to thicken the leftover liquid in the crock pot. Take about 3 tablespoons of the liquid and mix corn starch into it until the mixture is smooth. Slowly add the mixture back into the crock pot (I used a whisk to mix it back in). Lastly, add the shredded chicken back into the crock pot and let the mixture simmer.
I served the chicken over a piece of sea weed with a scoop of rice. Finally, the chicken was garnished with sesame seeds and scallions. Bon Appetite!
