A Year of Slow Cooking

Honey Garlic Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe



Good morning! It's the first day of school in our house, and I'm typing super quick to get this recipe out to you so I can bask in the fact that the baby is napping, the sun is shining, and the HOUSE IS QUIET.

QUIET QUIET QUIET

I may go do cartwheels on the back lawn...

right after I watch a soap opera marathon while eating a box of bon-bons...

This is a quick, easy, and super-tasty chicken recipe. I'd highly recommend using thighs--- they hold up better in the slow cooker and dark meat just tastes better. :-) I use boneless, skinless thighs. If your thighs have bones and skin, fish them out of the pot before serving (the chicken will separate from the bone and it'll be pretty easy).

The Ingredients.
serves 4


1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (4 or one thigh per family member)
3 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 cup  soy sauce (La Choy or Tamari wheat-free are gluten free)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup honey


The Directions.

Use a 4-quart slow cooker (if using a 6-quart, this will cook faster. Check after 3 hours on high, 5 hours on low).
Put the chicken into your cooker. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, then pour evenly over the top.
Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3-4 (I'd go with low---).
Serve with basmati rice and steamed or roasted vegetables.

The Verdict.

My kids adore this chicken. The ketchup and honey taste a bit like barbecue sauce, but slightly more tart. The basil gives it a different, herby flavor which I like a lot. If you are into freezer meals, this is a great candidate--- load all the ingredients into a freezer bag (raw chicken, the sauce ingredients) and then freeze. Thaw the bag overnight in the fridge, then plop the ingredients into your cooker for a fast morning plug-in.

Enjoy!

I know what you mean about the quiet--I'd be doing cartwheels too if my knee wasn't mess up.

This chicken sounds yummy!

Mal said...

This sounds delicious! I'll have to give it a try soon.

Debbi Does Dinner Healthy said...

Love this chicken! I don't usually use thighs though.

Much quieter, yes. However, I homeschool so I have to think more, and argue with the 12 year old to stay on task. Yes, even on the FIRST day here we're been arguing. Oh my!

I'd rather be doing cartwheels in the backyard!

gfe--gluten free easily said...

Yummy, Steph! You know that I think any recipe with honey is great. ;-) I cherish the quiet; enjoy!

xo,
Shirley

Unknown said...

Can I use tenders??
I don't like thighs, but the recipe sounds amazing and it is definitely one which I can freeze for later meals........

Stephanie O'Dea said...

Hi Unknown--- sure. The white meat tenders will cook just fine, but you'll probably want to keep an eye on them and pull them out as soon as they are cooked through, OR cook them longer until they've fallen apart and become shredded. Either way is just fine---it's personal preference and how long you'd like to cook.

lisa said...

This is one of the first dishes I made out of your cookbook and I love it! Super easy and tasty too!

Bridget C said...

For those of us not home in time to catch a crockpot at the 6 hr mark, I always use frozen meats and they come out great when I get home 10 hours later. I do this with every type of meat, chicken, pot roast, etc...I can't WAIT to try this one!

Tiphanie said...

This is just what I was looking for. Didn't have dinner for tonight, but I had some frozen (on the bone) thighs and just threw it all together. How long do you think it will take on low with frozen thighs? Thanks!

Diane-The WHOLE Gang said...

I love how the seasonings stick to the chicken. It looks finger licking good! Another great idea from you!

Chris said...

Yummo, I'm making this tomorrow for sure.

SSD Benefits said...

wow!!! it is so mouthwatering. I'm gonna try this one of these days

Kristin said...

Hilarious!!! Great minds think alike! I have this in my Crock Pot today! Last night I was perusing "More Make it Fast, Cook It Slow" trying to figure out what tonight's dinner was going to be, and I came across this recipe... Here was my thinking:
1) Sounds amazing.
2) I have all of those ingredients on hand.
3) I can't believe that I haven't made this yet!

So imagine my surprise when I saw your post today... and I had the exact same thing in my Crock Pot at home in Virginia Beach. Yep... Great minds I tell ya!

krisgray said...

Can't wait to try this! If we like it, I will use it when we have lots of family around at the holidays. Love the tip about freezing, too!

Tanya said...

Really? Just pop it in a bag, freeze, thaw and use when needed? Oh, this is my make-ahead meal...definitely going in my regular rotation!

Shannon said...

I agree with using the chicken thighs, although we tend to prefer chicken breasts, for some reason they come out very dry when I crock pot them. thighs crock pot much better, and since they are cheaper too, we crock pot thighs alot. This is another great receipe with ingredients we already have.
Thanks!

Joan said...

Sounds yummy! Have to try it soon!

Julie said...

It turned out such a lovely color...looks delicious :)

Paula said...

I like the look of this. I bought a slow cooker recently and like the results with beef and pork, not so much with chicken although I only tried that once, I think I overcooked it a little. I'll have a go at trying this recipe to see how it goes.

Carrie's Experimental Kitchen said...

I make chicken wings similar to this but have never tried it with basil and thighs. Sounds good!

nannyless mother said...

First day of school...I'm trying it!

Kaylen said...

Hi Stephanie - this recipe looks amazing! I am going to dig out my crock pot again now that fall is here, and my husband adores honey sauces, so I'll be making this for him soon. I'll probably blog about how it turned out too, since I tend to have adventures in the kitchen. Thanks for posting!

Kim said...

I've made this a couple of times. The kids aren't big on it, but my husband and I love it.

The Mysterious Writer said...

I saw your post yesterday, so I tried it today. My husband and my daughter love it. Waiting for two sons to return home, I expect that they will like it too.
Thanks for posting.

Becki's Whole Life said...

This sounds delicious and I love thighs, too. I like your suggestion for freezing this in the sauce and then baking in the morning. I am not always a huge fan of freezing stuff after it's cooked, but I love the timesaver of freezing things in the marinade or sauce- that's great!

Wine Harlots said...

Looks delicious (and super easy!)
I'd pair it with a white Bordeaux.

Cheers!

Nannette Eaton

Megan said...

Those look amazing! Thanks!

Cate said...

Ooh! I can't wait to try this. My boyfriend's mother bought us a slow cooker that I've only managed to ruin a roast in. Here's to round two! Thanks - this is great!

Lexie said...

Looks so tasty!!!

Starr said...

Oh, this was so good. Thank You! It is our new favorite. -works so well for those occasions when guests are coming and kitchen time is short... Just put it in the slow cooker early in the day and forget it. Yum!! and Smells heavenly while cooking!

leupagus said...

Hi! Just made this with the chicken breasts I've had in the freezer forever - the recipe worked awesome! This is something I'll be making time and again; it's so simple, and SO delicious. Thanks a ton for sharing!

Kathy said...

This looks so yummy that I'm going to put it on my food plan for this week.

www.glutenfreedetroitmetro.com sent me.

Christina said...

Any thoughts on doubling this recipe? I am cooking for 4 but we also love leftovers for lunches. PLUS I have a bigger slow cooker.

THANKS

Kerri said...

Hmm . . . looks DIVINE, but how garlic-y is it? My husband and I LOVE garlic, and I'd like to know if/how I should adjust the garlic in this recipe to make it "hubby-friendly." ;)

Emma said...

I made this the other day and it was great! I was a little nervous because I was using a 6 quart crockpot. I threw in about 6 thighs and the sauce. While it certainly tasted awesome, like a spicy/sweet barbeque, the chicken was a little dry. If I make it again, I would probably throw in 3 or so lbs of chicken and double the sauce recipe. Loved it and told that I should put it in regular rotation in menu planning. Thanks so much for an awesome blog! As a family of two, a Phd student and a Children's minister, life is sometimes too crazy to cook. I can throw stuff in the crock pot and it will be ready to eat when we are. You rock!

Sarah said...

This looks so good. It's definitely going on our menu soon.

amandacathleen said...

My youngest started pre-school last week and I have 3 hours totally to myself 5 days a week. It's odd, but I'm LOVEN the free time! Really excited to try this chicken, I added it to our meal plan for the month

Lexi said...

This looks like a great recipe and one that I can adapt for our allergy-free needs. Thank you for sharing! It's so wonderful to have crock-pot meals when homeschooling. Anything to save a little time!

Frummie said...

I don't think I ever posted to your site, but I do follow your blog.

Just a short note to let you know I just bought both your slow cooker books for my Kindle.

Thanks for your great recipes.

Frummie

Erin said...

Had this chicken last night, it was wonderful. I had a three pound bag of chicken thighs so I doubled the sauce and then when they were down we poured the sauce into a small pan added some cornstarch and it made an awesome bbq type sauce to put over the chicken and the rice. This will definately be added to our list of favorites. Tonight I am going to add the leftover chicken to some low mein for my kiddos.

Mandi B said...

For some reason, mine came out completely *bleh*. Maybe too much soy sauce? It had a funky runny sauce. More honey next time, I think. :)

Jenny - AKA - frogmama said...

I made this today! It was good. I cooked some carrot "coins" in the liquid on the stove (once the chicken was done) - they were good, so next time I'll throw them in at the beginning. Served over rice. Yum! Thanks!

Sheila said...

Our oven is on the fritz and I've been inspired to see how many things I can cook up in my crock pot before we fix it (it's too hot to run the oven anyway). I stumbled upon your site and tried your recipe tonight. It was true--my kids loved it! Thanks so much.

Lisa-Jane said...

Just found your site through a friend (Sian at High In The Sky) and I'm so glad I did! Will definitely be back.

Pink Umbrella Photography said...

I LOVE your site. This meal looks really yummy and I am going to have to try it.

Sandi said...

Love it, just found your blog! I recently gave kudos to the Crockpot on my blog :)

Keep up the great work-

Dissident Daughter said...

I have some frozen boneless chicken breasts I want to use up, so I will try this one out tonight.

Thanks for the great recipes/ideas!

Heather said...

I made this for dinner tonight and we loved it!! So easy to make, and delicious!

Christina said...

We just got done eating this. YUMMERS. I have a 6 quart slow cooker, so I put in 3lbs of chicken thighs and doubled the sauce. At the end, I took out chicken, turned to high and whisked in a corn starch slurry. Let it simmer for 15 mins then added chicken back and turned off.

Not sure if it was due to the larger crockpot...or if mine just runs hot; but my chicken was done after 4 hours on low!

A hit with the whole family. Will be making again.

bets said...

I checked the gf status of LaChoy soy sauce last spring and they would not say they are still gluten free. I could not find out why they won't say it isn't gf since there isn't anything in the ingredients that should be a problem. The good news is that there are now over 5 brands that make gf soy sauce in the US.

Cara said...

So excited about finding your blog!!!!! Tried this recipe last night & it was AWESOME!!!!!!! Can't wait to try more!!!!!!!

Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers said...

Cheap n' easy - sounds good to me!

Shannon said...

We tried this recipe a back on the day you posted it, and I am doing it again tonight!! I agree that the thighs are much more flavorful. :o) I didn't use as much soy as your recipe called for simply because I was "on fumes" and didn't want to go to the store for just one item. It turned out just fine with a couple or some tablespoons--just FYI--for those who are on a lower sodium diet. Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Sharon said...

Love slow cook chicken just did a Teriyaki version the other day , and totally agree that the thighs are the way to go. This recipe sounds great, and with the cold weather coming a must try.

Angie said...

Is maybe tomato sauce or tomato paste ok to try as a replacement for ketchup? I'm allergic to some ingredient in it. The recipe sounds really good!

beautifulladybird said...

Stephanie,

I made this last night, but forgot to start the crockpot early enough in the day, so I used the oven (gasp) and it turned out great! My girls loved it. Great recipe. Hope you are having a great day.

Tricia said...

I tried this for dinner last night...it was great :) the only thing I did different was just used half of the soy sauce it calls for because it's pretty salty and it turned out great :)

Rosa B. said...

I'm a *little* behind in my blog checking... ;)
Thanks so much for posting this! I've been looking for easy freezer recipes, so I'm definitely going to try this!

Sarah said...

I used more chicken and decided to double the recipe for the sauce...it wound up covering the chicken....the chicken probably cooked longer than it should have cause it was a little too done, so I'm wondering if I should've just used the same amount of sauce and maybe it wouldn't have tasted so soaked in it....just wondering.....

nadja22 said...

Everyone in the house loved this recipe. Everything about it was great. Thanks for making a working mom feel great when I leave the house. I know when I come home, a great meal will be there or it I come home later, my kids will not be suffering with their father's cooking!!!

Lisa in CO said...

Made this yesterday and it was fantastic! Such an easy recipe and always have the ingredients on hand. I think next time i will cut back a bit on the soy (although i used half low sodium soy sauce, half Braggs Liquid Aminos) and add some red pepper flakes for a little kick.

Thanks again!
Lisa in CO

Unknown said...

I made this last night for lunches for the week. It smells wonderful but the sauce seems runny and a waste. Next time could I add cornstarch to thicken it up?

trent said...

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! This one rocked. Sauce was a little thin, but the flavors were there and chicken was amazing. All 5 family members (even the picky 3 year olds) ate it. Now in our rotating recipe block.

B said...

this was AMAZING! i doubled the amount of chicken and doubled the sauce recipe for my 6 qt. crockpot. i realize that i've been overcooking my chicken, so this was done in 4 or 4.5 hours on low in mine. tastes even better the next day as leftovers!

Kelly said...

Can't wait to try this recipe! I'm so glad I found your blog, I'm always looking for new slow cooker recipes!

Alycia M. said...

I made this dish last Sunday. I halved the recipe as it is just myself and my son and it was done in about 4 hours on low in my 3.5 qt. cooker. I think i'll cut back on the soy next time since even with the low sodium kind it was a bit too salty. Regardless, both of us really enjoyed it. It's a keeper!

a tasty cake said...

Delish! Enjoyed this last night. I added some cornstarch to the broth, to thicken it up. Husband likes a gravy. I will skin the chicken next time to reduce the fat, though.

I found it to be more of a sweet and sour than a bbq.

DrLeonesse said...

Total yum! The grand kids wolfed this down.

Jen said...

Oh so delicious! I chucked 4 lbs of frozen skinned, bone-in thighs into the crockpot this morning and poured the sauce over top (I doubled the sauce). It cooked on low for 9.5 hours by the time I got home and still turned out amazingly tasty and tender! Hubby and I will enjoy this all week....so simple and tasty! Thank you!!!

Hannah said...

OMG this was delicious and so easy!!!

Erin said...

I adore this recipe.. it has become the new crock pot staple for my house, because I always have the ingredients on hand and just need to pick up chicken. I usually cut up some potatoes and/or carrots and throw them in, too, because they come out so tender and tasty (and save me the time of making a side dish!) I have a three-year-old who often barely eats dinner, and I caught him licking his plate after finishing up in record time. The only problem with this recipe is that I can't resist going back for seconds!

Anonymous said...

This dish was so easy and delicious! The kids said "mom you have to make this again". I told them it was so easy that they could make it next time. Fantastic site!

Kendra said...

I'm curious do you use frozen or thawed chicken. :)

Dana said...

This turned out awesome. I doubled the recipe and had no problems at all. I had it on high of an hour, then turned it down to low for another 5, but it has been done for a while. The chicken thighs held up beautifully and picked up all the wonderful flavors. I added a little garlic chili sauce from the Asian grocery store (mine is called "Sambal Oelek, but I've tried several), and it gave it just a little bit of heat. Served it over brown rice with broccoli on the side. YUM.

Mama Squirrel said...

Thanks to those who added the comments about low sodium, less soy sauce--that is a concern for us as well, so it's nice to know that it can be cut back.

Emeti said...

Just found your site via a friend posting one of your recipe on her FB (what she was making for dinner) and I stumbled on this one... there were supposed to be leftovers for my hubby's dinner tonight... oups... so yummie! thank you!

Christina said...

I made this for dinner on Friday and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing!

The Peterson Family said...

Making this on my kids first day back after Winter break. One month home is too long! I may join you in the cartwheels :) Kitchen is smelling good. Can't wait for dinner! Thanks for the recipe!

max&lucie said...

This is so yummy! I added a few dashes of Sriracha (Asian hot pepper sauce). I bet it would be amazing on ribs--tastes like asian barbecue.

mgicherman said...

This is in my slow cooker now and I can't wait to try it! I had chicken thighs in the freezer and was looking for something new to make with them and voila!! Thanks!

The Eclectic WAHM said...

This was a GREAT snow day meal today. LOVE this one!

Jen said...

I'm so excited to try this tonight while I sleep! It'll be ready to throw into a glass container to bring to lunch with me at work when I wake up tomorrow!

Sarah said...

I made this tonight and LOVED it. The flavors are amazing. I guess I was expecting it to be more like a sticky chicken with a thicker sauce. I saw someone's suggestion of taking out the liquid and combining on the stovetop with cornstarch to thicken it up. Is there any way to do that in the crockpot?
Thanks again for an awesome recipe.

Lanielou said...

Made this for DH and DD last night. DH tends to be a bit picky when it comes to new foods. Turns out I should have made more! Both he and DD couldnt get enough of it. I reduced the amount of soy sauce and after serving it over some rice I added cornstarch to the liquid in the crockpot. It made a nice thick sauce that was perfect!! Can't wait to make this again!

HipChickDigs said...

Really wanted this meal to work out, but it was a flop in our house. The flavors seemed really basic - final product tasted like catsup and soy sauce. The honey, basil and garlic were completely masked. It's also not healthy, which I was willing to overlook if it turned out to be fantastic. Instead it is a ton of salt (from the soy sauce) and sugar (from the honey) and not much else.

"Rayne" said...

hi, i just listened to something you were on? maybe podcast or somehting? it was on an app on my phone called mormon channel on everything creative. And i was thinking, i should cook in the crockpot more, because that is my super hectic time too, from 4-6 pm and i get so stressed out! trying to do dinner and asnwering all the "mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy" calls that never end from the kids. so today i was going to do a crockpot recipe, and the first one i typed in on google.com for chicken crockpot recipes was yours!!! ha ha ha... so i can't wait to try it, and i love that idea! it makes me want to do crockpot at least everyday!!!

Jennifer Horn said...

Several months ago I made this and my family loved it! I've got it on the list to make again this week.

MamaCheetah said...

Just cleared the dinner table, and am still reeling that my uber-fussy 7-year-old said he could eat it "a few more times." The hubs and I agree it needs a bit more to it - so we're going to add in some rough cut onions and maybe broccoli next time. It smelled sooo delicious, but the end flavor was leaning on the plain side. We'll try it again, though, if for no other reason than Mr. Picky will eat it! :)

Hollie M. said...

Great recipe! Actually tasted quite a bit like Chinese Bourbon Chicken! I used the 6 hour low cooking method. In the last 1/5 hours I added fresh broccoli and sprinkled them with the existing juices. It was all perfect with a side of brown rice. Thanks!

Armadillo Pepper said...

We are always looking for easy and delicious ways to use honey. Thanks for this recipe.

Stacy said...

This was a big hit in my house. My sons and husband loved it. I did use low sodium soy sauce to cut the sodium. Great flavor. thanks!

Anonymous said...

This taste like Jerk chicken without the heat. I'll have to force myself to eat this now that I've made enough for 12! ack... I added some Chile Powder to help combat the weird taste. PS: Note the Soy sauce as "Lite" Soysauce. Otherwise everyone is following the wrong recipe.

Heather Ray said...

Made this with chicken breasts, low sodium soy, and no salt added ketchup.. We LOVED it! It made a great freezer meal as suggested in one of your other blogs. Thanks so much!

Marja Welsh said...

What do you think about adding some carrots and potatoes to the pot before pouring the sauce over?

Noelle P. said...

Thanks for the recipe. I only had 1/4 c of soy sauce left in the cupboard and I added a little more honey to sweeten it up and it turned out great! Served it with Alexia's roasted veggies. Yum! I think I'll cut down the cooking time next time as the chicken breasts were a little tough. I'm also going to freeze the glaze for the next try!

Mandy Michel said...

Thank you! My two incredibly picky children very happily ate all of this and one asked for more. I did go a little lighter on the soy sauce.

Fat2Fab said...

This looks AMAZING! But, I only have a jar of minced garlic. How many tsp. do I need to equal 3 cloves?

Stephanie O'Dea said...

Hi there, I usually do 1/2 teaspoon of jarred garlic for 1 clove. So let's do 1 1/2 teaspoons for this!
:-)
enjoy!

Laurie K said...

I made this exactly as described except my chicken was frozen -cooked 9 hours. Family of five all raved-served over brown rice. Very good -thank you!

Lauren Imbruglia said...

I just put this in for the first time, I adapted it by:
using low sodium soy sauce
I put some black pepper on the thighs before adding the liquid and
I added a few shakes of crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little kick
I'm so psyched to try this! I will definitely do the corn starch thing to thicken it up if I think it needs it.

Jessica said...

This is so good! I should have used low sodium! I put in a little sugar to sweeten it up because it was so salty lol

Unknown said...

Agree with Jessica! Needed low sodium soy sauce, it was VERY salty with regular (and I love salt..). But made with teriyaki sauce instead the second time and it was ridiculously amazing. I've been craving it ever since. Also so great as left overs!

RWLibrarian said...

Had this for dinner last night. Looked and tasted very good, and the recipe was so simple! This is going to become a regular at our house. I used low sodium soy sauce. It was a nice combination of salty and seet. Thank you for noting the slow cooker size and time sdjustments. I find that so helpful!

Grace said...

Just a quick question. My husband can't have soy sauce but I really want to try this recipe. I'm not sure what to or if there is a possible substitute. Any ideas? May not be an option but I thought I'd take a shot! Thanks in advance!

Stephanie ODea said...

Hi Grace, my readers who are allergic to soy have let me know about the wonders of Liquid Aminos -- they come in a bottle in the grocery store and can be used the same way.
The popular brand seems to be "Braggs Liquid Aminos."
I hope this helps a bit!
steph

Jess said...

Just trying this and my picky kids asked for seconds! Awesome thanks :)

Unknown said...

This was AMAZING and SO easy to prepare! Everyone in our family loved it! I substituted the chicken thighs for boneless, skinless breasts and for my crockpot it only took 4 hours on low to cook. Thanks for sharing this recipe! By the way, it freezes really well too!

Rubies31 said...

Has anyone tried using bone-in, skin on chicken thighs? They were on sale and I'm looking for a recipe to use them :)

Stephanie ODea said...

Hi Rubie, you can use those chicken thighs. The cooking time will be the same. The skin and bones will remove easily after cooking. enjoy!

Apolitical Blues said...

Based upon comments and the idea the dish had a BBQ kind of flavor, I added 1/8 tsp. smoked paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper. This ones going on the 'play it again' list! Also, the idea of putting all of the contents in a freezer bag for future use is being put into use today. Thanks for the great dish!

Catarina Owen said...

my picky 2 year old said "mommy your food is so yummy!"
Made it to my list of approved recipes. Thanks!

Dana Heisler said...

This amazing. My whole family devoured it and one requested leftovers for breakfast. Thank you so much!

I double the recipe and used frozen bone-in thighs. Since I didn't start it until 3:00pm and my family was super hungry, at about 3 1/2 hours I pulled each thigh out and separated it to finish the cooking faster. At that point it was mostly done - just not around the bone. It cooked in 4 hours on high.

Penny said...

Hi, Stephanie! My family doesn't eat soy and I have not been able to find a soy free substitute locally yet. We used to love honey garlic wings, so I was wondering if there was any point in trying this recipe with some other liquid, maybe broth?
Thank you!

Stephanie ODea said...

Hi Penny, if you're looking for a gluten free and soy free sauce -- the Bragg's Amino Acids is what I'd recommend. good luck and enjoy!1

Melanie Bootten said...

This is sooooooo good!!! My new favourite!

Nicole I said...

OMG! This was more delicious than I thought it would be, even my picky 10 yr raved about it. I used Kikkoman Soy Sauce, because that's what I had in the house, added some baby carrots for a veggie and served it with Uncle Ben's Long Grain Parboiled rice. I'll be making dish this again and again.

Meredith Beck said...

I tried this tonight. So good!

Eileen said...

Just finished making this...the chicken is delish.
I put about 10 skinless/bonelss thighs on a bed
of sliced carrots.
Wonderful flavors!
I'm going to try the freezer method meal next.
Thanks for another great meal, Steph!

East2West said...

I would like to make this recipe this week. Can I use low sodium Soy sauce?

Stephanie O'Dea said...

East2West, absolutely! :-)

God's Child said...

Would this work with drum sticks? My family loves them!

Stephanie O'Dea said...

I don't see why not!

Lippy said...

I'm not sure if it's possible to fall in love with a blog but this one comes close

Just lookin... said...

Has anyone tried this with chicken breast? I would love to make this for my Fatther but he refuses to eat dark meat chicken.

Stephanie O'Dea said...

Hi Just Looking, my oldest will now no longer eat dark meat. Breast pieces work just fine, but aren't as juicy. The sauce is fantastic, though, and can be used on top for dipping/ to add more moisture. Enjoy!!

Sarah Taylor said...

Added some freshly ground Black Pepper and some ground Chillis - Gorgeous :)

herbie43 said...

I made this last night and it was fantastic. I had pounded the thighs beforehand and after three hours they were done perfectly. The sauce was so good I used it on my side dish of spinach.
