Crockpot Honey Sriracha Chicken

I love the crockpot for convenience but don't love what it does to chicken. Well, correction, I like bone-in chicken in the crockpot, but I feel like it kills breasts. Since I'm home on maternity leave/summer break I decided to try making it but keeping it to the lower end of the time range. That definitely helped. This chicken was tasty. It was flavorful and spicy, and the sauce that was drizzled over it sealed the deal. The sauce was creamy and cool which was a nice contrast to the heat of the chicken. I loved it over the simple rice... such an easy but tasty dinner!

Source: Slightly adapted from Crockpot Gourmet

1 to 1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
¼ cup Sriracha sauce
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce

For the drizzle:
¼ cup mayo
¼ cup greek yogurt
¼ cup sweet chili sauce
2 tablespoons honey

Fresh chopped cilantro (optional)

1- Cut chicken into large bite sized chunks.
2- Place in the crockpot. In a bowl mix together Sriracha, ¼ cup honey, and soy sauce.
3- Pour over chicken, cover and cook on high for 2-4 hours or low for 5-7 until chicken is cooked through.
4- Whisk together drizzle ingredients.
5- Serve chicken with rice or noodles as desired with a generous drizzle of the sauce. Top with cilantro, if desired.

  1. This is so simple, I like it. Cook pork chops with this, definitely good. Pork absorbs the sauce and become tender after long hours cooking. :)
