Fall is in full swing (even though it pretty much still feels like summary outside). Regardless, fall means soups and stews and CROCK POTS! Here is my first crock pot recipe of the season. It’s easy, cheap and pretty darn delicious.
crock pot honey garlic chicken
- 4 chicken breasts
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 c honey (I used my uncle’s honey from his very own bees!)
- 3/4 c soy sauce
- 1/2 c ketchup
- pepper, to taste
Mix the garlic, honey, soy sauce and ketchup in a small bowl. Place the chicken in your crock pot and pour the garlic/honey/etc. mixture over the chicken. Turn it on “low” for 5.5 – 7 hours and BAM. Once the chicken is done (mine finished in just under 6 hours), remove the chicken and cover to keep warm. Pour the liquid from the crock pot into a large sauce pan and simmer until it reduces to your desired thickness. (I reduced at a heavy simmer for about 16 minutes).
I served our chicken over rice with some sauteed peppers and onions. Pour that delicious sauce over the chicken (and whatever you choose to serve it with) and voila!
Eat up, y’all!
