Honey Garlic Chicken

This Sunday I fancied a lazy dinner. Well, Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest isn’t it?! I decided to get the slow cooker out the cupboard and dust it off for this magnificently tasty chicken dish. (I adapted the recipe from the brilliant Taste & Tell blog.)

Here is what you will need to feed 2 lazy hungry people. (Easily doubled)

  • 4 Skinless, Boneless Chicken Thighs
  • 1 Large Garlic clove (or 2 medium)
  • 60ml Soy Sauce
  • 60ml Ketchup
  • 60ml Honey

Firstly, measure out the soy sauce, ketchup and honey into a jug. Then finely chop the garlic and stir it all together.

Next, season the chicken on both sides with salt & pepper and pop it in your slow cooker in a single layer along the bottom.

Pour over the sauce and make sure that all the chicken is covered – then pop the lid on and cook on low for 4-6 hours until the chicken is cooked through.

Check the chicken at 4 hours – you don’t want to overcook it and make it dry. You can baste it occasionally if you want to, just to make sure the chicken is covered in the sauce to keep it moist.

When the chicken is cooked you can do one of two things. (I don’t really have any preference now I have tried it both ways.) Either remove the chicken and keep warm then pour the sauce in a heavy pan and reduce until you get your desired consistency OR Tip the whole lot (including the chicken) into a heavy pan and reduce until you get your desired consistency. It doesn’t really matter which way to be honest.

When the sauce is at the consistency you want, serve it up with some cooked rice. If you want to keep it gluten free, serve with a side salad, or anything else you like really! But I had mine with some rice and it worked beautifully.

What can I say about this dish? It’s simple, it’s marvellously delicious & the slow cooker does all the work for you. Oh, and chicken thighs are a cheap cut of meat so it’s good to your purse strings too!

Why wouldn’t you try this dish?!

And on that note, au revoir my lovelies!
