Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken

Just 5 simple ingredients for this simple and flavorful chicken.

Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken

My new love affair with my crock pot continues 👍

This recipe is actually for baked chicken wings, but, I gave it a whirl with my crock pot instead.  That was a very good decision.

This chicken is tender, juicy, has a little sweetness to it (which my kids love) and a little heat with the hot  pepper sauce. But, not too hot for the kids or Mr Plain.We served this with a side of my Chicken Rice. They went great together.

However, you could also pair this up with noodles, plain rice or serve it on a sandwich with a slice of cheese.

This Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken is really tasty..add it to your dinner rotation immediately!

    Hi Erin. Just found your site through my Slow Cooker site. Can not wait to try this chicken. I will not shred. I am sure this will work with pork chops. I am 76 and only discovered the many uses for crock pots last year. I used to make beef stew in it but now I use it for everything. Great blog.

    • erin says:

      Hello @dearcat..pork chops sounds like a great idea, please let me know how it turns out! I have discovered my crock pot within the past year's my favorite way to cook now 🙂 Thank you for visiting!

    Wondering if you could make this with boneless pork chops..

    • erin says:

      I haven't tried it with pork chops, but, I'm sure it would work out..if you give it a try, please let me know!

    Would this be tender enough if you decided to not shred the meat?

    • erin says:

      Hi- Yes, it is tender before shredding. I usually shred it, it just a bit easy to serve for us and easier for sandwiches if we would want them.

    Hmm, do you think you could sub something for the hot pepper sauce? I don't have it on hand. 🙁

    • erin says:

      You could use 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. Anything with a bit of heat.

    Hey Erin! I notice you say to spray the Crock Pot with cooking spray. Have you tried the Crock Pot Liners? They are GREAT! Especially with anything that is sticky like the honey in this recipe. You will find them next to the Oven Bags in the Ziploc section of your store.

    Thanks for this recipe, too.


    • erin says:

      Hi Billie, I just recently heard of the crock pot liners. I never realized they existed before! I am going to grab some and give them a try though. Anything to make clean up easier 🙂
      Thanks for the tip and stopping by. Hope you enjoy the chicken.

    What kind of steaksauce?

    • erin says:

      Hi Natahsa!
      A1 or any type of equivalent to that would work with it.

  7. The Chatty Housewife says:

    What kind of hot sauce is used in this recipe? Tabasco?

  8. Terri says:

    I'm going to try this this week! Wednesdays are typical slow-cooker days in my house, and I have all of the ingredients on hand! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Julie says:

    What kind of steak sauce do you use for this recipe? Heinz 57, A1, something else all together?

    • erin says:

      Hi Julie- I used a store brand steak sauce, it tasted just like A1, but, a bit cheaper 🙂 A1 or Heinz 57 would work great.
