Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken


  • 8 chicken thighs
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 pound broccoli
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, mix honey, soy sauce, garlic, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes and pepper.
  2. Place 4 chicken thighs in the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Pour half of the soy mixture over the chicken. Add the other 4 chicken thighs, and pour the rest of the soy mixture over the chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 7 to 8 hours. Add carrots and broccoli during the last 30 minutes of cooking time. (For softer carrots, add them in the beginning along with the chicken.)
  4. Optional: Broil the cooked chicken thighs, skin side up, to brown and crisp the skins, about 3 to 4 minutes.
