Print Recipe

Aren't slow cookers the best? You throw some ingredients in, you go to work, you come home, you likely don't have the motivation to cook dinner, and voila! Dinner is ready without you having to lift a finger.

With a slow cooker, you just have to take five minutes to throw everything in, and then boom! Perfect dinner every time! Did I mention that every part of this recipe gets cooked together? There's no fussing about in the kitchen preparing the veggies separately!

Honey garlic is one of my personal favorite flavors of chicken, and this dish does not disappoint when it comes to flavor.
