Crock-pot Asian Chicken is a simple recipe with exotic flavor. Perhaps this will be a new family favorite, or an unusual addition to the rotation to knock the ordinary out of your routine. Combining several non-traditional seasonings with the ease of the crockpot, this is sure to tantalize your tastebuds and make your cooking a breeze. Obviously James wrote this introduction for me.
- 4 chicken breasts, thighs, or a combination of the two
- 3/4 cup honey
- 3/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos (if gluten free)
- 3 TBSP ketchup
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 TBSP fresh ginger root
- 1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, juice reserved
- Place chicken in Crock-pot
- In a small bowl mix honey, soy sauce, ketchup, and pineapple juice.
- Grate in garlic cloves and ginger root to the honey-pineapple juice mixture
- Mix well
- Pour over chicken
- Cover and cook on high 4 hours or low 6 hours
- Stir in pineapple chunks just before serving
- Serve over white or brown rice
Cakey insisted on taking a picture of her dinner too! How cute! Not bad for a 2 year old.
Personally, I like this chicken dish. I think it has a good mix of flavors. James? Not so much. I have made this dish numerous times and each time I get a different response from him. He never says he doesn’t like it. He just claims it is not one of his favorite dishes, but despite this fact he upsold it for me in the introduction. He is a strange man sometimes. I do not make this dish very often. I usually throw it in the menu line up when I can’t think of anything else! 🙂
Try it out and let me know what you think. Winner, winner chicken dinner? Or should this recipe be put out to pasture?
Have a blessed day!
