You might be asking why do I use my slow cooker more in the summer? To keep the the cooking heat out of the house. In the winter I want all the heat I can  get in the house with Saskatchewan winters. Another of our favorite summer slow cooker recipes is Chicken Fajitas.

What you need:

  • 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts fresh or thawed
  • 6 Cloves Garlic finely minced
  • 3/4 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Ketchup
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper – optional

How to make Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken:

Layer your chicken in your slow cooker. You can use frozen or thawed, or fresh. I use partially thawed, because I  worry about temperature difference and breaking my slow cooker… again. The heat and the cold do not go well together and I am playing it safe from now on.

Season your chicken with garlic, thyme, and oregano, and the optional cayenne pepper.

Mix together the ketchup, honey, and soy and pour over your seasoned chicken.

Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Serve with veggies, over rice, over pasta. However you’d like you really can’t go wrong with this chicken.

This honey garlic chicken also makes the most amazing chicken sandwiches. We use it with our sandwich maker with a little cheese in it. My oldest and I will fight for the leftovers the next day, it’s that good.
