Crockpot Honey Bourbon Chicken

I love to hear my kids say "I Love This Dinner!"  This chicken really was good & simple to make.  My 2 year old even had 3 helpings.

Honey Bourbon Chicken

  • 1lb boneless chicken breasts
  • 1t salt
  • 1t pepper
  • 1c honey
  • 1/2c low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4c ketchup
  • 2T canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2c diced onion
  • 1/4t red pepper flakes
  • 2t cornstarch
  • 6t water
  • sesame seeds, for garnish (I forgot these in the photo)
Place the chicken breasts in the crockpot & sprinkle with salt & pepper on both sides.

In a medium bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, oil, garlic, onion, & red pepper flakes.  Stir to combine well.  Pour over the chicken in the crockpot.  

Cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1 1/2 - 2 1/2hours.

When done, remove chicken from the pot & shred into large chunks.  

Prior to putting the chicken back into the crockpot, combine some cornstarch in water and whisk it into the crockpot to thicken up the sauce a bit.  

Throw the chicken back into the pot & stir around to recoat the chicken in the sauce.

Serve hot over a bed of white rice and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
