Honey Bourbon Crockpot Chicken
This was so yummy! I will definitely be making this again. The only thing I left out were the sesame seeds, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. My sauce didn't thicken as well as I would have liked it to in the crockpot, I don't think it was able to get hot enough. But it still tasted yummy!
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
salt and pepper
½ cup diced onion
1 cup of honey
½ cup low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. canola oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
1-2 Tbsp cornstarch
sesame seeds, optional
Salt and pepper chicken and place in your slow cooker.
Place onion on top of chicken.
In a medium sized bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Pour mixture over the chicken in the crockpot.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours
Remove chicken from crock pot and slice into strips.
In a small bowl, combine 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 1 Tbsp water. Pour into sauce remaining in the crock pot and stir to combine. If sauce is not thick enough repeat with another Tbsp of the cornstarch/water.
Place the chicken back in the sauce and stir around to re-coat the chicken in the sauce.
Serve over cooked rice and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top (optional).
Gluten free: Use a gluten free soy sauce, such as La Choy brand and you are good to go!
