Asian Style Crock Pot Chicken
There is something freeing about making dinner in the morning and knowing I don’t have to cook that night. I love the smell of it cooking all day, and it feels great to know I don’t have to drop everything at 5:pm to start dinner that evening.
In this recipe, you will learn one of my favorite ways of making dinner, which is “set it and forget it!” I am getting more and more use out of my crock pot these days. When I first made this recipe, I wasn’t sure how well my husband and son would like it. But it came out delicious, and they requested again. Success!
What you will need:
Crock Pot #ad
2 lbs organic chicken thighs (bone in)
3 cloves organic garlic minced
4 Tbsp honey
4 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp soy sauce or substitute
Salt, pepper, thyme, oregano to taste
1 Tbsp cornstarch
Line the bottom of your crock pot with the uncooked chicken thighs. You can also use boneless chicken breast here, but I prefer dark meat for this recipe. Sprinkle your minced garlic on top and some dry spices so it soaks in flavor as it cooks.
Plug in your crock pot and set it to low. In a separate bowl, mix honey, ketchup, and soy sauce. I used a soy sauce substitute here since the MSG associated with most soy sauce can cause a migraine headache for me. So, I chose Liquid Aminos. Same good flavor without all the preservatives. #ad
Stir the ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Place the lid on top and let cook on low for 4 to 5 hours. Or if you are in a hurry, on high for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. That is it!
Remember, every crock pot cooks differently. If there is any question of whether or not the chicken is done, use your trusty digital thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is 165℉.
If you want to have a thicker sauce, add a slurry during the last hour of cooking. Mix in a cornstarch slurry. A slurry is 1 Tbsp cornstarch + 1 Tbsp water. Mix this in a separate bowl and then add to the crock pot. Whisk it well and allow chicken to continue cooking the rest of the way.
I served mine with rice and peas to complete the Asian theme, with a little sauce on the side for dipping! It was so delicious and I will definitely make this again!
