Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

I have now officially started my reading week, which means I can now start posting all of these recipes I have been eager to share with you! Although I do have school work to do (naturally), I plan on watching as much of the Olympics as possible along with catching up on my blog reading!

Due to my busy and hectic schedule the past few weeks, I have been experimenting a bit more with my slow cooker. It really is a great feeling to have dinner already warm and ready for you as soon as you step through the door…oh and not to mention the wonderful aroma that fills the house.

Given that my main use of a slow cooker is to reduce my prep time, this recipe will literally take you about 5 minutes to put together. You can assemble it quickly before you run out the door because no real prep time necessary.

I served this sweet and tangy chicken over leftover brown rice from the day before, along with steamed vegetables. To keep with the minimal prep theme, I recommend you cook extra of whatever grain you prefer the night before, so you can just heat it up and serve without having to wait for it to cook. However, if you forgot to do this, then just quickly steam a big batch of frozen mixed vegetables, drizzle with some olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then call it dinner!

Happy Family Day to those who are celebrating!

    This looks wonderful!
    I made slow-cooker honey and sesame chicken yesterday actually, went down a treat. And boy, how glad I was when I brought some leftovers with me into work today, yum! :D
    I love how much flavours a few ingredients contain when simmered for long enough, mmm!

    This was so delicious! I made it today for dinner but I used the chicken as filler for lettuce wraps :) Thanks for the recipe!
