Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful 2013 and I hope 2014 is filled with lots of love, happiness, and health! My resolution for 2014 is to lose this baby weight once and for all! I joined Weight Watchers at the beginning of December (yes, I am crazy for trying to diet during the holidays) and I’m excited and motivated by the weight I have lost so far. I am eating better and finding new, healthier recipes to try.  So over the next month or so I will be posting healthier crock pot recipes with the Weight Watchers points values as well as other nutrition facts. I am starting by sharing this simple crock pot honey garlic chicken. Pretty easy to throw together and great over a bed of broccoli or brown rice. I used THIS recipes as a starting point.

Ingredients:
– 4-5 Easting Right boneless skinless chicken breasts cut up into chunks
– 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
– 1/3 cup honey
– 4 garlic gloves (minced)
– 1 tsp basil
– 1/2 cup ketchup

Directions:
1. Put chicken in slow cooker.
2. Mix all other ingredients in separate bowl. Stir well.
3. Pour mixture over chicken. Try to make sure everything is coated with sauce.
4. Cook on low for about 4 hours (if chicken is cut up), or 5-6 hours on low if chicken is whole. Or on high for 3-4 hours. Don’t over cook or chicken could dry out.

    Ooooh looks good!! I have been reading your blog for some time now but have never commented before. I am starting WW in the next few days and am looking for different recipes. I have done WW before but the problem I had was finding variety in the food I ate. I am really excited to see what else you come up with :)

    Hello Sarah, I bought a crockpot last year and I love using it but I have very few recipes. I have a favourite recipe I am comfortable with which is beef in beer and it has become the recipe I use most often.
    Well done on your WW program so far and I look forward to seeing what else you come up with to give me some ideas of getting the most out of my crockpot.

    You look awesome! I joined online but haven't done anything with it yet. I needed motivation and you have motivated me. Maybe I can share a success story. I love your blog and your recipes and crafts. Thanks!!
