Crockpot Honey Glazed Chicken

Sometimes cooking dinner is the last thing I want to do. My house has an open floor plan so when I am sitting on the couch I am staring at my kitchen and my oven. As I sit there, trying to pretend the hours aren't ticking away and I need to make something, the oven stares back. Ugh. And let's be honest, the oven will win the staring contest. It was one of those days where I just wanted a home cooked meal but I didn't want to cook it. Considering John only knows how to make eggs I knew I had to formulate a plan. Crockpot it is!

This chicken dish was tasty. It used common ingredients that I had on hand and was really good. The chicken was tender and juicy with a subtle sauce. It wasn't overly sweet which I feared with 1/2 cup of honey. At first the 1/4 cup of butter was discouraging but honestly so much of the sauce is leftover after the chicken cooks that I don't feel guilty because there is really minimal butter per serving. If you need a simple dinner idea that is easy and flavorful, give this a shot.

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/8 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup bbq sauce
3 chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Pepper & Salt


Place the chicken in the crockpot. Stir the remaining ingredients together in a bowl, then pour over the chicken. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 4-6 hours.

For freezing: Place all ingredients int a 1-gallon freezer bag. Lay flat in freezer. To thaw: Take the bag out of the freezer the night before, making sure the frezer bag is completely sealed. Dump contents in the crockpot and follow the directions above.


  1. I'm so excited...I asked Santa for a Crockpot for Christmas! :)

  2. What do you coat egg noodles with? I see green spice there?

  3. Jason- I use butter, garlic, and parsley (mostly just to give it some color).
