Honey Garlic Chicken (crock-pot)

I've been using my crock-pot and lovin' every minute of it. Every Monday and Wednesday night at our home is crock-pot night. It's so easy to pour all the ingredients into the crock-pot before I leave for work and it's ready when everyone arrives home. The girls have dance and my son plays golf on Monday's & Wednesday's and this method has made my life so wonderful.


I have been using a cookbook called More Make it Fast, Cook it Slow. I have about 25 recipes bookmarked, so I don't think I'll be running out of ideas anytime soon. Today's recipe is a chicken recipe and I made this with chicken tenderloins and they worked great. It changed it up a little bit from the normal chicken breasts and everyone loved it.

Honey Garlic Chicken (crock-pot)
adapted from More Make it Fast, Cook it Slow Cookbook

6 to 10 chicken tenderloins, frozen
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup honey

In your slow-cooker put the chicken into your cooker. In a small bowl combine the rest of the ingredients, then pour evenly on top of the chicken. (Tenderloins cook faster then breasts, so watch it at about 4 hours, and mine crock-pot is HOT, so sometimes it's done at about 3 to 4 hours.) Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.

  7. Made this last week and my son is already requesting it again! So delicious....I served it with rice and steamed broccoli. We combined everything and put some of the sauce over all. Wonderful and simple recipe that I will make again and again!

  9. Made this tonight for my family. It was amazing. On low, it only took 3 hours, so it was quick and easy. It had great flavor! I didn't have any basil, so I substitued with dried Italian Seasoning - it tasted great! Highly recommended and I will be making it again!

  10. Have this is the crock-pot right now!! It looks and smells great!. I didn't have basil either and did the same this Shantel. I used the Italian herb seasoning. Is there a way to pin this to Pintrest?

  11. I tried it and it was entirely too salty. The Soy sauce needs to be lessened.
