Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken Recipe

This slow cooker honey garlic chicken recipe is a delightful blend of sweet and savory flavors. With minimal prep time, you can let your crockpot do the work, resulting in tender, juicy chicken infused with the irresistible combination of honey and garlic.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (optional, for thickening sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional, for thickening sauce)
  • Sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish (optional)


  1. Place the chicken breasts in the crockpot.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, dried basil, dried oregano, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour the honey garlic sauce over the chicken breasts, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  4. Cover and cook on low heat for 4-6 hours or on high heat for 2-3 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  5. Once the chicken is cooked, you can optionally thicken the sauce: In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the crockpot with the chicken and sauce. Cook on high heat for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  6. Once thickened, serve the chicken hot, garnished with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired.
  7. Enjoy your delicious crockpot honey garlic chicken with rice, quinoa, or your favorite side dishes.
