Honey Sauced Chicken

Oooo this meal was good...probably because it was a piece of cake, and because it was delicious! My hubb took one bite and complimented me, which is a hard thing to get sometimes...well, that immediately anyway! I really loved just throwing this in the crockpot and coming back 3 hours later to a finished meal. However, if you want to make it a 30 minute meal, I think cooking it in the oven would be equally as tasty. (P.S. The recipe actually used chicken WINGS, I substituted chicken breasts).

Honey Sauced Chicken

3/4 pound chicken (of your choice)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion (or 1/16 cup onion flakes)
1/8 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3 hours or on high 1 1/2 hours. Chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.

To bake chicken as a 30 minute meal:
Dice chicken and season both sides with salt and pepper, place in 8x8 pan. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.

Serves 2.

  1. Very Nice Recipe. Almost an Asian Flare. Just a little heavy on the pepper. I added brown sugar. Next time I think I will cornstarch or flour to thicken just a little. It was great over rice, wth some of the juice on the rice. Very nice meal with mixed veggies.
