Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken is a slow cooked chicken in a sweet and tangy Asian inspired sauce.
Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken
- 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp ginger grated
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 1-2 tbsp sriracha depending on how spicy you would like this
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 scallions sliced thin, divided (white parts for cooking, green for serving)
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- sesame seeds for garnish if desired
- Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
- In a medium bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, hoisin, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, sriracha and the white parts only of the scallions.
- Pour the sauce mixture ontop of the chicken and cook for 2-3 hours on low. (Cooking time depends on the thickness of your chicken. My chicken breasts were pretty small and took 2 1/2 hours.)
- Remove the chicken from the liquid and place on a plate or cutting board. Allow the chicken to rest for a couple of minutes and then shred with two forks or slice it up with a knife.
- Transfer the liquid from the slow cooker to a small saucepan.
- Whisk 2 tablespoons of water with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce.
- Cook on high until bubbly and thickened, whisking constantly. Pour the sauce back in the slow cooker along with the shredded chicken and toss to coat.
- Serve immediately with sesame seeds and green onions for garnish.
