Honey Garlic Chicken

Oh….my…..word!  This dish is knock your socks off good!  It’s like crazy good man!  It’s like an explosion in your mouth good!  It’s like don’t get in my way until I have licked my plate clean!!  Okay, have I gotten you excited by this dish?  The first thing that should excite you is that you use your slow cooker.  Seriously, I love putting food in my slow cooker, coming back 4 or 5 hours later and dinner is DONE!  Edna, my beloved oven, gets a break and I do too.  I served the chicken over rice as Sir Streusel is a rice fanatic. It could be served in a sandwich or in a wrap sandwich.  There are countless ways to use the chicken, but I would suggest just getting it in your mouth ASAP.  

You know you want a bite.

This may be my new favorite way to cook chicken. The flavor is spot on.

Grab your slow cooker, I know you have chicken in your freezer, and get that baby going on low heat.  While you have some free time, dance, sing, give yourself a pedicure, practice that rap you have been secretly working on or be real adventurous and take a nap. 


Get this on your table ASAP.  Your family will think you have been slaving all day in the kitchen!

Love ya,
