Honey garlic chicken is one of our favorite Chinese takeout dishes, so of course we had to come up with a version that we could make at home! Our recipe for Honey Garlic Chicken tastes even better than takeout, and there's hardly any work involved 'cause it's made in a slow cooker!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
What To Do:
  1. Place chicken and bell pepper in slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ketchup, honey, soy sauce, garlic, and basil. Pour mixture over chicken and mix well.
  3. Cover and cook on low 4 to 5 hours, or until no pink remains in chicken.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

It was a quick and easy dinner. I will cut back on the soy sauce just a tad. We put in over brown rice and added a side of sauted zucchini and carrots for a complete meal. It is something that we will make again

Did not care for this. Too much soy sauce.

That's always disappointing when you try a recipe and then you end up not liking it. I have found that different brands of soy sauce have different flavors. I always use low sodium soy sauce and that works out just fine with no loss of flavor. I used to buy a cheaper store brand of soy sauce but then I tried the name brand and it really does make a difference. You could always cut back on the soy sauce or substitute half of the soy sauce for rice vinegar and if you need to just increase the honey by a teaspoon. I use recipes just as a guide for inspiration and I often change them around to suit my taste and everyone else's in the family.
