Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken & Broccoli {Crock-Pot Recipe}

Pin It


If you haven’t already noticed, I love my slow cooker (Actually, I think I might have a slight addiction to it). The creative meals are endless and the convenience aspect is remarkable!

I recently came across The Recipe Critic’s recipe for Slow Cooked Honey Garlic Chicken and knew I had to try it. I did make a few minor modifications to the original recipe, such as adding broccoli and pineapple chunks. This recipe was really easy to make and tasted delicious. It is almost reminiscent of sweet and sour chicken.

Here is the modified recipe:

https://sites.google.com/site/oureverydayharvest/pumpkin-spice-bread?tmpl=%2Fsystem%2Fapp%2Ftemplates%2Fprint%2F&showPrintDialog=1




INGREDIENTS:
  • Approximately 2 ½ lbs. of Boneless Chicken Breasts or Tenders
  • Fresh Broccoli Cut into Floret Pieces (You can also use frozen broccoli florets)
  • 1 Can of Pineapple with Juice (20 Ounce Can)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 3/4 Cup Honey
  • 3/4 Cup of Soy Sauce
  • 3/4 Cup of Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Ketchup
  • 2 Cloves of Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon of Minced Ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch


DIRECTIONS:
  1. Cut chicken into cubes and place into the slow cooker
  2. Add the juice from the canned pineapple into the slow cooker. You can also add the actual pineapple if desired. The original recipe didn’t require this, but I love pineapple and found it to be a tasty addition. I had pineapple rings and just sliced them into small chunks.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients (oil, honey, soy sauce, water, ketchup, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch). Mix them with the chicken and pineapple. 
  4. Cook on low for approximately 4 to 6 hours. 
  5. About 20 minutes prior to serving, you can steam or boil the broccoli to your desired liking, then combine with the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker. 

 Serve and enjoy over a nice hot plate of rice!
