I made this for the first time last night, and it was really good. HOWEVER, I'm going to make a few adjustments the next time.

Grind some pepper onto 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts and place them in the crock-pot.
Mix together:
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce (gluten-free if you need to)
1/4 cup ketchup (ditto on the gf)
1 clove garlic, minced or 1/2 tsp. jarred garlic
1/4 cup finely diced onion

Pour over the chicken. Cook on low 3-4 hours (mine were still kinda frozen when I put them in, and they were PLENTY done in 4 hours).

When chicken is done, take it out of the crock-pot, cut it into bite-size pieces. Combine 3 tsp. (recipe said two, but it was too thin) corn starch with 2 tablespoons water. Pour it into the sauce, turn up to High and stir occasionally until it's thickened, about 10 minutes. Put the chicken back in, then serve over rice or noodles.

I used rice, and I'm glad i did, because it helped soak up the sauce. It also called for salting the chicken as well as peppering, but this was salty, so I'm skipping the added salt next time. I also had broccoli as a side, but I was saying to my husband, it would be REALLY good if I threw the broccoli into the sauce in the last 5 minutes or so of the sauce thickening process. so next time I will!
Oh, and it called for sprinkling sesame seeds over the chicken before serving, but i don't really like them, and had none, so i didn't!

Sounds good and I have a slow cooker that I can take the cooker pot off of the base and put it directly on the flame of my stove when I want to make a sauce or gravy with drippings.

That's great! Mine comes off the base too, I didn't think of putting it on the stove... It's oval shaped, and glass, I wonder if it CAN go on the stove.

The sauce sounds similar to a stir fry recipe my mom uses. Bet it WOULD be good with the broccoli mixed in!

I will have to try this, and thanks for trying it out and making recommendations!! At least it must have been good enough that you're thinking of trying it again!!

oh definitely. It was very good. And it's good to know you don't have to have the breasts totally thawed out either.

Oh... it says "crock pot".

So it's not a recipe named just for me?

I have done this with chicken thighs and legs (bone in skin on)
1 lb chicken thighs or legs or combo of both
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1.2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup white wine
1 1/2 cups water
1 large onion sliced thin
3 garlic cloves peeled and left whole

mix all spices together and sprinkle on both sides of chicken. Brown on both sides in a large skillet. Place sliced onion and garlic in bottom of crockpot. Add chicken. Pour wine and water on top. Set on high 3-4 hours. Chicken falls off the bone. I did bonelss skinnless breasts once and they were dry but maybe split chicken breasts may be better.

Sounds delicious, I like the addition of the honey.

I love crock pot chicken. The easiest recipe I have found is to use about two pounds of chicken, then add a jar of salsa and a packet of taco seasoning (or 2.5 TBS homemade taco seasoning). It's great over spanish rice, or in tacos and burritos. I used red salsa last time but I think I'm going to try a tomatillo next time I make it.

Here is another good one:

Is this super-sweet? I'm not a fan of super-sweet sauces but I'm wondering if the ketchup and soy sauce cut the sweetness.
