My husband loves the taste of honey, and when I found this recipe I knew he'd like it. It's also one of those great recipes you prep in the morning and is ready to eat when you come home in the evening.
- 4 -6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- black pepper
- 2 cups honey
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- sesame seeds (optional)
- Place chicken in slow cooker; sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
- Combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil and garlic in large bowl. Pour over chicken. Cover; cook on LOW 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
- Garnish with sesame seeds before serving, if desired.
My dh made this recipe exactly as written without the sesame seeds. It turned out really good. He shredded it and put it over rice. It was a tad salty, I think low-sodium soy would help with that and it was a little strong on the soy so we'll likely reduce it to 3/4c soy next time. We had no problems with dry chicken, but maybe that's because we shredded it...
I noticed in the reviews that people thought this recipe was rather dry, so I changed it a little. I left out the oil, added the zest of two lemons, and used an extra clove of crushed garlic. Rather than slow cooking it, I left the chicken to marinade and stir fried it in the evening. I stir-fried bell peppers and peas separately with a little of the sauce and once the chicken was cooked mixed them together. It made a really nice dinner, I'll be making it again!
Sorry, but this was not nice. Made it for a get together for the first time and no one even went for seconds. Will not be making this one again.
