This healthy honey garlic chicken recipe takes no time to throw together using your crock-pot or slow cooker. Just five ingredients and kid-friendly! Say hellooo to quick and easy dinners and SEE YA to hours upon hours in the kitchen!
raise your hand if you’re forever thankful for the inventor of the crock-pot!? i knew a slow cooker was a must-have on our wedding registry, but i didn’t realize just HOW much i needed it until lately. it’s seriously been such a life saver.
our crock-pot had been sitting in our cabinet since we moved in in june and i felt guilty for not using it yet… but let’s just say I was waiting for the perfect recipe to kick-off with 😉 i definitely chose right because this healthy honey garlic chicken is on another level.
dinner was always a special time for my family growing up, so sitting down to a hot meal just seems cozy to me. with the weather cooling down, hot dinners are even more of a priority because yo girl is ALWAYS cold.
michael makes fun of me because i walk around the apartment with a blanket permanently attached to my body. he asks me why I don’t “just get a snuggie” but… I think we all know why. ha!
for this easy dinner recipe, i served the chicken over rice with some roasted veggies. i prepped the rice the night before by using our crock-pot, too! i highly recommend it. i keep big batches of it in our fridge because we eat brown rice with almost every meal. if you’d like me to teach you how, just message me on the contact form and i’ll send the instructions your way! it’s SO simple.
this healthy honey garlic chicken took NO time to throw together and turned out exactly how i wanted — not overly powerful, and with lots of sauce left to pour on top!
it’s been really wonderful having left-overs around the house. i’ve used it on salads, put together some honey garlic chicken avocado lettuce wraps and even thrown it in my soups! there are so many ways to use left-over chicken.
