Easy, Healthy Honey Garlic Chicken Recipe

Y’all…..This was so good. I wasn’t sure how it would come out, but it’s definitely a new favorite. 

This crockpot honey garlic chicken recipe is definitely asian style, but I feel a hawaiian vibe to it, too, honestly. It was delicious, and you can watch the video below for it as well!

What You Need

  • 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • Toasted sesame seeds

How To Make It 

  • Mix your soy sauce, hoisin sauce, honey, ginger, sesame oil, and green onions into a bowl and mix. For the green onions, I used mainly the white part and saved the green for garnishing at the end.
  • Place your chicken in the crock pot and pour the mix over top of it. Let sit until cooked, it took mine about three hours.
  • Remove chicken and shred it.
  • Remove a few tablespoons (I did about 6) of the sauce in the crock pot and mix it with 1-1/2 tbsp of cornstarch. Place back in the crock pot.
  • Put the shredded chicken back into the crock pot and mix. The sauce should be thicker now than it was before and should sink into the chicken.
  • Enjoy! I added the green onions, toasted sesame seeds, and some pineapple slices to garnish and it was a HIT at our house!
