Honey Garlic Chicken

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, optional, to thicken
  • Cooked Rice and Veggies for serving


  1. Mix Sauce - In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, mix up the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and chili garlic sauce. I like to use a fork or whisk to combine.
  2. Add to Slow Cooker - In the insert of your slow cooker, add the chicken breasts and pour over the sauce.
  3. Slow Cook - Cook on high for 2 hours or on low for 4 hours, or until the chicken breasts are cooked (165 degrees F).
  4. Shred Chicken - When the chicken breasts are fully cooked, remove onto a plate and shred with two forks. If using the cornstarch, to the sauce left in the slow cooker, whisk in the cornstarch. Add back in the shredded chicken and stir to combine. Cook on High for 15-20 minutes to allow sauce to thicken and coat the chicken.
  5. Serve - Serve or store and enjoy!


Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days
