Honey Garlic Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe

Honey Garlic Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe

This Honey Garlic Chicken slow cooker recipe is so simple and tastes absolutely amazing! Put all the ingredients in first thing in the morning and cook all day for an easy dinner.

I used frozen drumsticks and put them in the slow cooker, added a few basic ingredients like lemon pepper seasoning, (already minced) garlic, honey, bbq sauce, and a bag of frozen diced onions from our freezer. It took me about 4 minutes tops to put it all together and then I let it cook for about 6-8 hours. That is (definitely) longer than it needed to be cooked, but everyone loved how the meat just fell right off the bone. It was tender and flavorful.

This recipe can also be adapted to chicken breasts, thighs, wings, etc. Use whatever your favorite kind of chicken it and add the ingredients below.
