Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken

I was so productive last weekend. I packed away all the shorts and t shirts and swapped them out for everybody’s jeans and sweaters.

It was a cool 50 degrees all weekend and we were cozy and oh-so happy. And damn if I didn’t pat myself on the back for checking that giant task of our seasonal to-do list.

Aaaaand then this weeek rolled around bringing us 70 degrees and you’d have thought I was trying to torture my boys.

My bad.

Any who, it may not seem like Winter is coming from the weather, despite what our wardrobe (and the local weatherman) says, but I can tell– especially as we shift from using the grill, and move firmly into oven and crock pot territory.

This crockpot honey garlic chicken recipe is easy to throw together, and you let the crockpot do all the heavy lifting.

Serve it over a warm bed of freshly cooked white rice, and make sure to ladle a generous scoop of sauce overtop the honey garlic chicken.

Because, this sauce. This sauce will have you smackin’ your lips and licking your plate clean. Shamelessly.
