EASY HONEY GARLIC CHICKEN

This is an easy slow cooker recipe for chicken thighs in a sauce made with soy sauce, ketchup, and honey.

INGREDIENTS
    • 6 chicken thighs, bone in or out, with or without skin*
    • Salt and pepper, to season
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, to season
    • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
    • ⅓ cup honey
    • ¼ cup water (or chicken broth)
    • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
  2. Heat a pan or skillet over medium high heat; sear chicken thigh fillets or breast fillets on both sides until golden and cooked through.
FOR BONE IN THIGHS:
  1. Reduce heat after searing on both sides, cover skillet with a lid and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, while turning every 5 minutes until done. Alternatively, see notes for oven method.
  2. Drain most of the excess oil from the pan, leaving about 2 tablespoons of pan juiced for added flavour.
FOR SAUCE:
  1. When chicken is done and cooked through, arrange chicken skin-side up in the pan (if cooking with skin); add the garlic between the chicken and fry until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add the honey, water, vinegar and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thicken slightly (about 3-4 minutes).
  2. Garnish with parsley and serve over vegetables, rice, pasta or with a salad.
