This Slow Cooker Honey Garlic chicken is a favorite in my Feast 2 Fast group. You’ll love this set-it-and-forget it, crowd-pleasing weeknight dinner! Dig into the recipe below!

 
 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 2 tbsps Raw Honey

  • 3 Garlic (cloves, minced)

  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder

  • 1 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

  • 2 lbs Chicken Thighs (skinless, boneless)

  • 6 cups Broccoli (chopped into florets)

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil (or organic butter)

  • Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)

 
 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine olive oil, raw honey, minced garlic, chili powder, sea salt and black pepper together in a bowl. Mix well.

  2. Place chicken thighs in the bottom of your slow cooker. Pour the honey garlic sauce in over top. Use a spatula to toss until all the chicken is well coated. Set on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 hours (or until chicken is cooked through). Optional: Flip the chicken thighs at the halfway point and use a baster or spoon to coat the chicken with the run off marinade.

  3. Before you eat, lightly steam your broccoli just until it is bright green then toss it with coconut oil and season with sea salt and black pepper.

  4. Baste the chicken again before removing it from the slow cooker. Serve chicken thighs with broccoli on the side. Enjoy!

 

NOTES:

  • No Chicken Thighs?

    • Use chicken wings, drumsticks or breasts.

  • No Slow Cooker?

    • Marinade the chicken in advance. Bake in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

  • Need More Carbs?

    • Serve with rice, potato or quinoa.

 

Hope you enjoy this recipe!
