For dinner tonight, make this delicious Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken. Tender chicken is simmered with honey, garlic, pineapples and soy sauce and served over fluffy brown rice and the best part – the slow cooker does most of the work.
Whenever I’m looking for a dinner that will wow the family but is easy to make for a busy weekday, I often turn to my favorite Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken. It was a recipe I learned early on in my culinary cooking journey, adapting it from a classic AllRecipes.com recipe for slow cooked Honey Garlic Chicken. It’s so simple to whip together early in the morning and when you come home, you are greeted with something that is nothing like you could get from takeout. This is a recipe that you can totally make your own – upping the heat level or, if you like it a bit more sweet – you can add a touch more honey. The pineapple adds another layer of savory sweetness and compliments the tender chicken.
I have made it a myriad of ways over the years and whether you cook if for 4 hours or 8 hours, the chicken is a deep rich molasses hue with the honey ginger soy sauce permeating every delicious bite. Using the chicken thighs makes this recipe totally economical and with a few pantry ingredients, you have a fabulous meal.
I always serve this Honey Garlic Chicken with rice and I love using Minute® Rice which I always keep in the pantry. Minute Brown Rice is one of my favorites because it comes together in an instant, is wholesome and has a nutty flavor. I’ve used it in a few dishes here on Cooking In Stilettos including my favorite Aloha Fried Rice and my Arroz Con Pollo. To add even more flavor to the rice, I simmer the rice in chicken or vegetable stock and and find that Minute Rice is the perfect accent to many of my dishes. Minute Rice is not only gluten free but is also GMO free. Added bonus – Minute Brown Rice is ready in just about 10 minutes – a quarter of the time it takes to cook the standard brown rice. Another favorite of mine is the Minute Rice Multi Grain Medley with a blend of of four gluten free grains – long grain brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice, and quinoa. With today’s busy schedules, you can see why Minute Rice can be a pantry’s bff.
