And it was goooood. Not too sweet, not too spicy.
– 4-5 chicken breasts
– 3/4 cup honey*
– 1/2 cup soy sauce
– 1/4 cup ketchup
– 2 teaspoons minced garlic
– 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
– Onion powder, red pepper flakes** and pepper – just sprinkle a bit in
– 4 teaspoons of cornstarch and 1/3 cup water
* so, the amount of honey can vary from 1/2 cup to a full cup. I split the difference at 3/4 cup. Depends on how sweet you want it
** I only used a small bit of red pepper flakes. I don’t like spicy but I know this would taste good with even more.
Start by sticking your chicken into the bottom of the crockpot.
Whisk together the honey, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic, vegetable oil, pepper, red pepper and onion powder. Make sure you whisk it because it takes a little bit of work to incorporate all the honey. Otherwise it sticks to the bottom of whatever bowl you’re using.
Pour the sauce over the chicken. I stirred the chicken a little bit so it was all coated. Turn the crockpot on low for 4 hours.
At the four hour mark, pull all the chicken out of the crockpot and slice it up. Mix 4 teaspoons of cornstarch and 1/3 cup water together and pour that into the sauce that’s still in the crock pot. Turn the crockpot up to high and let it cook for 10 minutes more. It will thicken the sauce slightly.
Put the chicken back into the crock pot. I also added steamed broccoli. Sprinkle in some sesame seeds. Serve it over rice and eat warm. Super good.
