Tasty’s Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

I hate to admit this, but I have never used my slow cooker, until last night. My husband has always used the cooker and this is “his” second one! What inspired me to use it was a video I saw on my Facebook feed by Tasty. It looked so easy and delicious with the ingredients all cooked in one pot! Since it is just the two of us, I only prepared half, but next time I will make the whole recipe. It would make wonderful leftovers for the work week. I used skinless chicken thighs, because I wanted to reduce the amount of fat. It was tender and juicy and you don’t need to broil them either! Meal planning can’t get any easier and healthier than this!
