In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, ketchup, garlic, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes and black pepper.
Line your slow cooker with all the chicken, spacing it out as best you can.
Add the baby red potatoes on top of the chicken.
Also add the carrots in.
Pour the honey garlic sauce over top of everything.
Cover and cook for 7-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.
