Sometimes there just isn’t time to go to the store. We need a recipe that we can throw together in a couple of minutes with things we already have in the house. This is that kind of recipe. Likely you already have everything you need to make it at home and it takes less than 5 minutes to get into the crockpot. Easy, peasy. Once it’s done there are endless serving possibilities serve it over rice, stuff it into a sandwich, toss is on a salad, wrap it up in some lettuce, or add it to stir-fried vegetables. Since this recipe is so versatile, consider doubling up for leftovers during the week. It makes a terrific lunch or dinner.

Fabulous! I used chicken thighs and cooked it for about 3 hours. It was super tender. Served over quinoa. Thanks!

Do you cook chicken first?

There is no need to cook the chicken first, it can go right into the crockpot raw.

upped the amount of red pepper flakes because we like that sweet/spicy flavor. So easy and very tasty! I served with brown rice, roasted carrots and steamed broccoli. My husband really liked it.

This is a delicious recipe! Toward the end, I used a spoon to dice up some of the breasts (the chicken was VERY tender at this point) and it really allowed the flavor to soak in even more. Seriously tasty and delightfully easy to make.

I tried this recipe out tonight. It did not taste like honey or garlic. The strongest flavor was the oregano. The chicken was also dry. I would not recommend this recipe.

Uhm... not sure what you’re talking about. This recipe doesn’t even call for oregano.
