Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies

The easiest one pot recipe ever. Simply throw everything in and that’s it! No cooking, no sauteeing. SO EASY!

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies - The easiest one pot recipe ever. Simply throw everything in and that's it! No cooking, no sauteeing. SO EASY!

Just because summer is quickly approaching in about two weeks does not mean that you need to put your crockpot in storage. Rain or shine, winter or summer, slow cookers are meant to be used 365 days of the year, and it comes in really handy when you move into a new home and you have no idea if the oven/gas range is working yet.

Seriously. We have been living in our new home for less than a week and I have yet to test out the stove. But my slow cooker never fails me, especially in this glorious one pot meal, packed with the most flavor-packed chicken thighs and three different kinds of veggies.

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies - The easiest one pot recipe ever. Simply throw everything in and that's it! No cooking, no sauteeing. SO EASY!

Now the recipe calls for bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, which I highly recommend using if you decide to broil the chicken at the very end to help crisp up the skin. But this is a completely optional step so if you decide to skip this, it is best to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or boneless, skinless chicken breasts). You can’t go wrong either way!

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies

The easiest one pot recipe ever. Simply throw everything in and that’s it! No cooking, no sauteeing. SO EASY!

10 minutes8 hours 5 minutes


  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 16 ounces baby red potatoes, halved
  • 16 ounces baby carrots
  • 16 ounces green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

For the sauce

  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, ketchup, garlic, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes and pepper.
  2. Place chicken thighs, potatoes, carrots and soy sauce mixture into a 6-qt slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours, basting every hour. Add green beans during the last 30 minutes of cooking time.
  3. OPTIONAL: Preheat oven to broil. Place chicken thighs onto a baking sheet, skin side up, and broil until crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Serve chicken immediately with potatoes, carrots and green beans, garnished with parsley, if desired.

    This has a really nice flavor. Cooked on high 4 hours and the chicken (I used breasts cut in half) was dry, next time I will cook 3.5 hours. My problem with a lot of these type of recipes though is that the sauce is thin and doesn’t really stick. I tried cooking it down at the end with a little bit of flour and cornstarch and pouring it over, but it still didn’t stick to the chicken. The other thing is at the end the sauce that’s left in the crockpot has a lot of chicken runoff, which grosses me out so I try not to think about it. If I could the the sauce to stick better  (I did baste) I would love ❤️ it! I’m trying it again though 

  2. Could I sub chicken breast instead and use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce?

  3. I followed the instructions to a tee !  After 6 hours on low, it was so thick, and started burning on the sides of the crook pot!

    This recipe is AMAZING. I subbed the green beans for asparagus. I added the asparagus with the other veggies at the beginning, the result was they were just super cooked but SUPER delicious because they were very soft (they stayed together) but soaked up all of the yummy juice/sauce. I also used chicken breast instead (3 medium sized breasts). I only based the chicken & other veggies half way through (I turned the chicken and pushed the veggies down into the sauce). SO GOOD! I’ll be making this again.  At the end I slightly shredded the chicken. 

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    Definitely delicious! The only issue I had was that due to my work hours, I had to cook it on low for almost 9 hours. The result was chicken so tender it fell right off the bone and I didn’t get to brown the skin at the end. However, it was still delicious! It was almost like a stew (but with broth, not sauce). I also will cook the beans a bit longer next time, as we prefer our green beans a little softer. All that said, we will definitely have this again. It was super yummy! 

  6. Rated 4 out of 5

    Very good but definitely had to double the sauce recipe. And I thickened it with cornstarch before serving.

    Made this for dinner tonight. It was very good, but I think I’ll cook my vegetables separate next time. The chicken was delicious!

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    SOOOO delicious! Followed the steps exactly and it was so easy and yummy. Would definitely make this again. The only thing I suggest is if not all the chicken is in the marinade, half way through switch the top pieces for some that are submerged so they get all the juicy flavors as well.

    Tried this at work and it went over well … not to mention the place smells wonderful!

  10. Can I substitute asparagus instead of green beans? Will that cook in the same time frame. ?

  11. My chicken is cooking but my potatoes and carrots are still hard because there isn’t enough liquid.. I almost feel like I should’ve double the liquid. 

  12. Drooling just thinking about this! If I prep everything and cook on low for 7/8 hours do I need to baste every hour? Thinking to make it this week but I’ll be at work while it cooks. Thanks in advance!

    • Am going to make it tomorrow.  My question is do I have to baste it every hour. Kinda doesn’t just throw it in the pot and leave it

  13. Easy recipe, used real maple syrup instead of honey, delicious & easy.

  14. Rated 5 out of 5

    I make this 2x/month for my husband. Is his absolute favorite recipe and I try A LOT of new recipes for his picky taste. I usually add mushrooms and serve over forbidden/purple rice.

    • Love this recipe. I basically do it the same but fill my large crockpot with veggies over the chicken and double the sauce. I don’t baste, but when I get home from work, I do a good stir, to make sure all the veggies are submerged in the sauce (if they haven’t been). Then, I leave it for another hour.

    Why does the recipe call for 8 chicken thighs, but they use 3 in the video?

  16. Was thinking of trying this for dinner tonight but was wondering if there’s a substitute for soy sauce? My husband has an allergy to it. Thanks!

    Made this for my sister and her family. Delicious and everyone including kids loved it.

      This was absolutely delicious!!! I’ve made it several times now. My kids are picky eaters and they ask almost every other week if I would make it again. I do not put the carrots or green beans in the pot because the kids like the beans cooked in a little bacon drippings. Neither do I put in the carrots. Again, they like them with a little brown sugar. I would DEFINITELY pass this on to my friends. Thank you for a wonderful easy meal that makes my family happy. My husband told me ” it’s so good, my tongue will slap my brain” lol

    Sluggish stoves are excellent for summer in the south-less warmth in the cooking area than the oven. This looks actually delish and i recognize my household is mosting likely to love it. Thanks so much for the dish.

    Thank you Jana!, one of the best chicken 
    I had in a long time.
    I strayed a bit from your original recipe by
    adding 1/4 cup of calamata olives and 1/4
    cup of raisins.
    All the best!

  22. I made this last week for dinner. I put everything in the pot in the morning and turned it on low for 8 hours or more. I was so very good. Only thing I did wrong was not cut my potatoes and carrots up small enough. I double the sauce and reduced the soya sauce and it was so good. I am going to be making it again.

  23. What are the calories in this per serving?

  24. Rated 5 out of 5

    I made this while my parents were in town visiting, and they loved it so much. My dad kept going on about how it reminded him of his mother’s cooking, and it brought back the best food memories. She was an excellent cook, so that’s a big win! Mom asked me for the recipe as soon as they got back home. The only thing I did a little differently was taking a moment to brown the chicken thighs in a cast iron after they finished cooking because I felt like all of the good browning from the initial sautee had softened, and I prefer chicken skin to have a little crunch.

  25. Any thoughts on a substitute for ketchup?  My two year old literally just finished the ketchup with his Salmon yesterday (this is the only way I can get him to eat salmon lol).  Anyways bc of Covid I can’t just run to the store with my little one and my infant.  Could I use tomatoes sauce instead? .  

  26. Do you need to baste every hour on low? Also what is the calorie count per serving for this dish! Thank you! It looks great! 

  27. Hey! I had the same thought putting everything in like.. there’s NOT enough moisture in this. I used two lb chicken breasts instead and then added like double the potatoes, carrots, and green beans at the end. And then filled that sucker up with water til all ingredients were covered. The chicken ended up just falling apart. I recommend trying that! It does make it more of a stew, but the flavor is still *chefs kiss* and you can always make extra sauce for more flavor after it cooks. I think my only complaint is I don’t believe the carrots compliment the flavor of the dish well. I agree maybe some onion or some kind of pepper would do it some good. Otherwise, I really think you should try it again. 🙂

    Very tasty! Making for the second time today, at family’s request. I sub coconut aminos for the soy sauce, and add a little extra than recipe calls for. It is so good I eat the leftovers as a soup, I shred the chicken for it.

  31. What do we do with the sauce?

    • It notes in step 2 to add the soy sauce mixture (aka the sauce) into the slow cooker after you place in the chicken ,potatoes and carrots

    So good! If using chicken breast cook 4-5hrs and add fresh cut green beans during the last hour. My family loved it! Definitely will be on the rotation at our house!! 

    • Is that 4-5hrs on low? I assume, but I’m very new to crockpot cooking and am not sure.

    This chicken is delicious. I used sweet potatoes (fresh), because I didn’t have the regular potatoes, and they were delicious! The sauce flavored them to deliciousness.  This will be on my menus weekly. Thank you

  38. Making this today! Does anyone know how many calories are in a single serving? 

  39. Hi Jana,
    I am trying this recipe today. I pray it comes out great. I read some of the comments and decided to add some extra seasons. I am excited. I had a whole lot more vegetables than the images so I accounted for that as well. I can’t wait to eat it. I am considering serving over yellow rice. I have time to decide.
    Thank you for sharing your ideas keep them coming

  40. you do know Italian seasoning is 1/3 to 1/2 oregano? You may like it better than you think

  41. It’s in the crockpot right now.. can’t wait to try it… I used drumsticks instead of thighs: just had those the other day…. I got so caught up I peeled the potatoes: so praying everything turns out great! Sounds good. pic looks really yummy… I will post after it is tasted/eaten.. FINGERS CROSSED.. tHANKS FOR SHARING.

    yum! swapped the honey for maple syrup – soooo good!

  43. Hi there, I’m curious if I can cook the chicken from frozen for the suggested 7-8 hours  in this recipe? Or should the chicken be fully thawed prior to cooking? Thanks!

    • Frozen chicken is not recommended in the crockpot because it takes too long to thaw, putting it in the temperature danger zone! Thaw completely first! 

    • Not sure if I missed something but this recipe was a disappointment in our house. Flavor was tolerable but not delicious. We won’t be making this one again. 

  44. Rated 4 out of 5

    I have no idea what I did wrong but the chicken completely fell apart and it turned into shredded chicken. I couldn’t broil the chicken at the end. 

  45. I just made this and it is delicious. I was a little thrown by there only being 3 thighs in the crockpot in the picture, but the recipe calling for eight, and that all not fitting in the crockpot with all the veggies. I ended up using two crockpots for it all to fit- I didn’t know if I could stack the veggies on top of the chicken. Next time I make it I may try thickening the sauce a bit so it’s a little less runny possibly with arrowroot?, and add more honey and more seasonings, but those are minor tweaks. It’s a great recipe, so easy, and one that I would use to entertain. Thanks so much for sharing it!

    wow, first seen mention of reduced sodium soy sauce, sounds really great!

    This was fantastic and so easy! The only substitution I made was broccoli for green beans. The taste was really good and the chicken turned out tender.

    Obviously presentation isn’t a big deal, but any tips would be appreciated. Awesome recipe and will make again!

  52. Quick question, why does it say 8 bone in chicken thighs when you only used 3? 

    • Hi Lacey! You can trust our recipe directions that call for 8 bone-in chicken thighs. The photo only shows three simply because the remaining chicken thighs are not visible under the other ingredients in the slow cooker. Hope that answers your question!

      • Your imagination is fine but that is a convenient untrue answer (clearly in the photo, under the 3 thighs and veges is the pot, not more thighs). (Honesty is still the best policy.)

        • Honesty and kindness is truly the best policy. 🙂

          The response from Jana is correct. We are happy to send you more images from different angles so you can count all the thighs. Just be sure to provide the best email address.

    I totally wasn’t sure about this recipe when I first put everything in the pot, especially because I’m usually not a fan of chicken thighs, but this actually turned out amazing. I was meal prepping for a few days, so I threw a bunch of extra vegetables in there with it (brussels sprouts, plus I doubled the green beans and carrots) and ended up having to double the sauce amount, but it was worth it! When I was reheating, I popped the serving amount into a small casserole dish and put it in the (toaster) oven to bake at about 375 for 10 minutes, then turned it to broil for a couple of minutes just to crisp up the skin on the thighs and a quick caramelization of the veggies on top. It was one of the first times I’ve actually enjoyed chicken thighs! I also took all the left over juices from the slow cooker pot and let them simmer in a saucepan on the stove while adding some flour (didn’t have cornstarch at the time) until the sauce reduced into a kind of gravy, which I used as a topper whenever I was reheating. Super simple recipe, and I’ll definitely make it again.

  60. Rated 4 out of 5

    Sauce is sweet but not overly sweet. Next time I will thicken the sauce. I used 1 tsp Italian seasoning instead of basil and oregano since I don’t like oregano and was out of basil. Added some minced onion and extra garlic. Green beans need more than 30 minutes to cook.

  61. Can i do asparagus and broccoli instead? If so how? 

    • In my experience broccoli only needs about 30 minutes in the crock pot, I would suggest doing it the same way as the recipe states for the green beans. It’ll be softened but not soggy, so still a bit of a bite to the broccoli.

  62. Easy, quick and simple to make.  Delicious and easy to use and the only difference would be to use frozen green beans because I had trouble with the fresh green beans getting tender enough, also if you prefer peas (frozen) work too.  

  63. Any recommendation for the instant pot timing?

    I made this recipe and we loved it! I felt kinda bad throwing away all that amazing broth that was left so i cooked some rice, mixed it with the broth (the rice absorbs it). Then i added diced carrots, shredded leek, spring onions, fried egg, koriander and i was left with a very nice nasi goreng 🙂

    Made this for my family and it was a hit. It was very quick/easy and I did not baste it every hour because I was not home to do so. The only complaints were that the flavor didn’t make it to the middle of the potatoes and the sauce wasn’t thick enough. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and they were falling apart (not terribly) at the end. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper as I like things spicy…in my opinion, I could have added a little more. I added some mined onion, seasoning salt, and unsalted chicken broth (to cover the veggies). I cooked it an hour longer after adding the green beans so they would be more tender, but they didn’t absorb the flavors like the rest of the veggies. I used baby red potatoes, but next time I will cut them into fourths so the flavor makes it all the way to the middle of the potato. The chicken was DIVINE!!! Next time I might only cook the chicken with the sauce and turn it into a stir fry. I’d love for the sauce to be a little thicker, but the flavor was spot on.

    I made this with little hope of it turning out like planned as I’m a terrible cook! Couldn’t believe how easy it was and took less than ten minutes to make the sauce and bung it in the cooker, couldn’t baste it every hour as was busy and it still turned out amazing!! Delicious succulent and sooo tasty!

    Super easy and delicious. I used 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breast and cooked for 7 hours. I added the beans with an hour to go and they were perfect. The potatoes that I had were pretty small so I didn’t cut them in half and they were tender but not mushy. Great recipe!

    Made this for dinner tonight. Substituted the chicken for boneless pork chops. Was soo tasty! Also, only put the carrots in it along with the meat, as I was making a pasta side to go with. Everyone loved it. Had plenty of liquid leftover, so turned it into a reduction-mixture-type sauce to spoon over the chops and carrots. One extra thing I might do next time: it was Very tangy (almost too much), so I’ll use half the soy sauce it calls for and replace rest with broth.

    Made this for the family tonight. They absolutely loved it. I discovered I only had a 4 qrt after measuring out the liquid so I ended up using 6 chicken thighs instead of 8, but used all the liquid. Also pot was too small to add green beans so I ended sauteing that on the stove pot with garlic and onion. Will definately be making again!!!

Easy, inexpensive and so tasty.

    I mixed most of the finished liquid with a corn starch slurry and made a thick sauce that set it over the top.

    • Can you tell me how much corn starch slurry you used? I’m thinking of making this without the potatoes and serving over brown rice instead but I’ll want a thicker sauce.

      • Molly, just take a bit of liquid from pot, whisk in few tsp cornstarch till smooth, then add back to pot. Best to do this on the stovetop as full thickness of sauce isn’t reached until boil after addition of slurry.

    • Excellent idea! I am going to copy you when I make it tomorrow.

    Made this twice now and both times added 1 cup of chicken broth so there is fluid to cover all. Also, I steamed the green beans so I can enjoy the flavor. I don’t always like having all myfood taste the same. I only use organic. Thist ime I browned the chicken first since it was colorless the first time. I consider this an excellant recipe and benefited from the great comments left here (i.e. one wrote to increase the honey to 1/2 cup then later the recipe was changed to that). Thank you for therecipe, the pictures and all the good instructions.

    So many negative people. Either you dont know how to cook or are buying bad ingredients. Ive made this recipe at least 5 times now and nothing about it is anywhere as negative as some people are acting like. Sauce is great goes good with the vegetables. I use real honey from a local bee farm. Broiling the chicken makes it crispy and then it falls off the bone. Overall very simple and perfect for anyday!

  86. Rated 4 out of 5

    I have a 3-qt crock pot, so I used two large chicken breasts and halved the rest of the recipe.

    Following some of the comments, I used 3 Tbs of soy sauce and filled the rest of the 1/2 cup with water, and used about 1 tsp of Italian seasoning instead of the oregano and basil. I placed the vegetables in the following order: chicken on the bottom, followed by potatoes and carrots, and put green beans on top. I put green beans with the rest of the ingredients at the beginning. I poured the sauce on top of everything and cooked on high for 6 hours (I have a Proctor Silex crock pot) without basting.

    Chicken was my favorite in this recipe. Special thanks to Mandy for mentioning in her comment to put chicken on the bottom. It absorbed the sauce nicely, and reminded me of barbecue chicken.
    Carrots and green beans came out great too, although carrots maybe slightly on the mushier side.
    Potatoes were too mushy for my liking, and I’m not sure the sauce is a good pairing for them.

    Overall, it was a good quick meal to make, but I would probably only do the chicken and possibly the carrots with that sauce again. I would probably just roast my potatoes instead and saute green beans with garlic (I know this defies the whole one-pot meal deal, but it’s about whether your priority is taste or convenience). I would also add just a little more crushed red pepper, a little less soy sauce (I think the 3 Tbsp comments were meant for the whole recipe, and I used it for half of the ingredients), and try cooking it for 4-5 hours. Although chicken was quite nice, it was in some parts a little dry (I did not baste).

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    So easy to make and family loved it. I used boneless chicken breast. So delicious. It was a little spicy for me, so next time I will eliminate the red pepper flakes.

  88. Can I replace the chicken thighs with boneless chicken breast? If so how many would be good? 

  89. I’ve tried this recipe before and we all loved it in my house, I’m using an Aroma rice cooker on slow cook setting for 6 hours min.

    Has anyone tried adding rice to the recipe, not sure if it would just burn or fluff up in the juices. Any thoughts?

    This is most delicious! (I, too, struggled for a moment with the video showing just three chicken thighs, but forged ahead.) I just piled all the chicken on top of the potatoes and carrots, and later, topped the whole thing with string beans.

    Came out delectable, thank you so much for this recipe!! (I did pull everything all chicken and vegetables out of the liquid, and thicken it with a TBSP of corn starch, for a true sauce.) But that’s just me 🙂 And I think the added broiling of the chicken-skin side, or even one last fry in a pan, made it better still.

    A really great recipe! I served it over mashed sweet potatoes tonight; it would be terrific over rice.

    (Maybe sometimes people forget…a recipe, is not a cooking tutorial; you kind of “learn along the way,” no?)

    I’m sorry this recipe has triggered a few horrendous responses. 

    I loved this. Again, thank you!

  91. I Used pure maple syrup instead of honey and turned out amazing! cooked on low for 6 hrs. Carrots and potato cooked perfectly!

    It was delicious but i messed up. USE REDUCED SODIUM SOY SAUCE!! Like the recipes says, i ventured over and used regular soy sauce, the recipe itself was delicious and the next time i make it i will follow the recipe. We used boneless chicken breasts instead of the thighs. The chicken turned out perfectly cooked. THANK YOU

    The recipe says it calls for 8 chicken thighs, but the video only shows 3. Is the recipe supposed to say 8 ounces? Help! Lol! Making this now.

  94. I can’t have anything with soy. What do you recommend I use in place of the soy sauce?

    I’ve never cooked anything before. This dish came out fantastic! No one believes I did it!!! Thanks!

    I cooked this recipe on high for 3 1/2 hours then added the beans per recipe.  
    The carrots and potatoes as well as the beans were all undercooked after 4 hours.
    I continued to cook on high for two more hours before the vegetables were suitable to eat.  
    At that point the chicken was shriveled and dry.  WE ate one helping then discarded the rest. 

  97. I love this recipe! I have used it so many times with my slow cooker. However I recently replaced my slow cooker for an instapot but can’t figure out how to convert how long to cook it under the slow cook option or use the pressure cooker option. 

  98. Rated 5 out of 5

    Second time doing this. Threw everything in at one time and made a little more sauce. I tried broiling and not broiling, liked both ways. Would definitely recommend this recipe to others. Be creative, you can change the vegetables, use sweet potato instead of regular potatoes, make it your own.

    I absolutely loved this recipe! I’ll admit, I was skeptical of the ketchup in the sauce but I was pleasantly surprised! I made this exactly as directed and it was delicious! I’ll definitely make this again.

    My mother gave me a crockpot for Christmas and this was the first recipe I made with it 🙂

    I didn’t have ketchup, so I used tomato purée instead. I don’t think the sugar in the ketchup is necessary considering there is honey in it as well. And the purée added some nice, red colour. I also added raw beets.

    The only thing I didn’t have was the red pepper flakes, which maybe would have added some more zing. 

    I am making this one again, and will try the ingredients in the sauce in different volumes.

  101. If I use boneless skinless chicken breasts instead how many or what weight should I use?

  102. Rated 5 out of 5

    Used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
    Cut them in half.
    Doubled the recipe.
    Sprinkled bone dust (dry rub, goggle it. )
    on top.  Great for all sorts of food.
    All 5 adults and 4 kids loved it.
    Not too spicy, not too bland.
    Served with salad and ciabatta bread.
    Love the quick prep time.
    Will definitely be serving this again soon.

    Hello I’m wonder g if I can use my Dutch oven and bake this entree?  My crock pot broke!!

    • Rated 5 out of 5

      I doubled the sauce recipe and used 8 boneless thighs. This is actually one of new favorite recipes now. It’s absolutely amazing. I dumped everything at once – cooked on high for 4 hours – low for an hour- all veggies were perfect 

  104. Rated 5 out of 5

    I finally made this tonight and it is going in the recipe rotation! Super easy, moist and flavorful chicken breast. It was approved by grandparents to grandkids who all raves about it. Add to that how easy it is and we can’t wait to have it again. I added onions and only basted once. I used frozen chicken breasts and cooked on high for 4 hours. At the end I strained the liquid and everyone loved using it as a sauce! 

  105. Easy to follow and turned out great! Used boneless skinless thighs and seared first, then put everything in crock pot on high for 3 hours (could’ve gone a little longer, but we were getting hungry and meat was cooked through). Didn’t add green beans as I did a favorite side dish with green beans, and forgot parsley… still delicious!

  106. Hi! I’m making this now and thawed the chicken out first and only had 6 hours to work with so started out on high for 1.5 hours and the remaining on low. Is this safe? My meat thermometer is broken…

    i made this and everyone loved it even my picky husband i didnt have fresh green beans or frozen so i added a ca of string beans right along with the potatoes and carrots etc the whole

    Thank you to the creator of this recipe and a special thank you to everyone who wrote their comments and suggestions. I kept them in mind while I prepared this meal. Honey was short, only had 1/4 cup, cut the soy sauce down to 3 T, added 1 cup of chicken broth and cooked the beans and carrots separate in the microwave (4 min.). I was really grateful to all who wrote those tips, especially because I have made recipes that were awful and with just a few tweaks, might have been ok. You hate to waste your time and money and then get so disappointed! So, everything came out great! It was tasty, the chicken was tender and had good flavors, potatoes were good and of course the veg. didn’t taste like everything else.

  109. Rated 5 out of 5

    A delicious recipe! Have made it a bunch of times now. I modified it a bit to include a little more honey and BBQ sauce, but it is so yummy!

    Quick question for you: have you tried this in the Instant Pot and/or do you know the timing conversion?

  110. Rated 5 out of 5

    This dinner was amazing!  I will say this…….I tweaked it a little.  For all of the reviews that said it was terrible…….here’s why (in my opinion).  I would NEVER put a half cup of soy sauce in any recipe!  It’s overkill!  So I put 3 tablespoons of soy sauce and filled the rest of the half measuring cup up with chicken broth.  It was perfect.  My whole family loved it.  

  111. Rated 5 out of 5

    I love this recipe! It was so easy to make and the flavor is amazing! My only problem was my green beans weren’t cooked all the way so I’ll have to make sure to put them in longer next time! 🙂 

  112. Rated 4 out of 5

    My BF and I agree this recipe is absolutely delicious! Though I’ll admit my green beans never come out right, so I’ll increase their cook time when I make it again tomorrow. I got a giant pack of fresh chicken thighs, but individually they seem way smaller than usual. I know the recipe says to use 8 thighs…do you have a rough estimate of how many pounds/ounces of chicken your recipe is designed for, Chungah? Thanks!

  113. Rated 5 out of 5

    I made this as directed and really enjoyed it! I did broil the chicken thighs, but I had to squeeze everything in because my crock pot is small and the chicken thighs that weren’t on top got soggy again. Next time, I’ll be sure to put them all on top and the veggies below so the skin stays crispy. Also, I wasn’t able to baste this, but it still turned out great.

  114. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love love this recipe and 5-6 hours on high I’ve found to be the best for time, and green beans the last hour…and don’t skip the crispy step last! My son and husband are both sooo picky and they request this!

    My issue today is I didn’t put it in the crock pot I totally forgot! Can I do this in the oven in my dutch oven instead?

    Thank You!

    With the handful of bad reviews on here I had my doubts. So just to be sure, I broke out TWO crock pots and had one with the original version and one with my own tweaks and additions. Just so everyone knows, BOTH turned out amazing. I feel like everyone that didnt like the original version either didnt follow the directions correctly, got confused by how many peices were in the video (she explains that regardless of the video, the recipe is for 8) or it just isn’t for them. However, with my own version, I replaced the soy sauce with Worcestershire and added mushrooms, bell peppers and sriracha for some extra added kick. Other than that, I kept everything the same. Great recipe that it easy to make and more importantly, easy to tweak to make to your liking.

    I don’t get the negative reviews; I loved this recipe and so does my family (some of whom are very picky). I’ve made it a handful of times and it’s always a hit. Also a good recipe to make for having guests over because it’s easy, filling, and simple but still very flavorful.

  117. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is one of my favorite go-to recipes. It is delicious & easy. My cat came in the kitchen because it smelled amazing! I use chicken breasts cut up or tenderloins instead of thighs. They’re less fatty and still come out juicy.

  118. Rated 5 out of 5

    Has become a staple recipe in my family.  Pleases everyone. I have shared with others with same feedback.  Very simple. Follow to the letter, never fails.   And like others have said, can be easily baked in oven, or even on the stove.  Thank for sharing !!

    I’m surprised and confused by the negative reviews, too! This recipe is in our regular rotation and is one of my husband’s favorite dishes! I actually make it in the Instant Pot. I place 8 to 12 bone in thighs or drumsticks at the bottom, pour in the sauce (I omit the red pepper flakes since my young daughter eats it too), and place the chopped potatoes and baby carrots on top (I don’t use green beans). Set Manual High Pressures for 12 min, NPR. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I cooked mine on high for six hours.  Four hours wasn’t enough.  It’s okay tasting (not sure why some people were so against it), but over-all it’s probably not something I’d make again.

      It doesn’t taste OR smell good. I’m usually a real fan of their recipes but NOT this one. Very disappointed.

  121. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love this recipe! I’ve made it SO many times since finding it on Pinterest a few years ago. We use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, as one of my children has a soy allergy. It’s incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious. We usually have leftovers and it tastes just as good the next day, re-heated on the stove top with some of the leftover sauce/juices. Thanks for sharing!

    Made this for dinner and it was a hit! I didn’t have carrots but red potatoes and green beans were great with chicken and sauce was delicious, used boneless chicken thighs. Will definitely make again.

  124. Basil and oregano with soy sauce and honey?  I’ve never heard of Italian style herbs with an Asian style sauce.  Weird!  It doesn’t sound appealing at all!

  125. Rated 5 out of 5

    Awesome! Only I used the boneless and skinless chicken, sweet potatoes (for healthier carbs) and added onions (because we love onions). It was fantastic! Definitely making this again!

  126. Rated 4 out of 5

    Just a tad spicy for me, if you’re at all as weak as me when it comes to spice I’d decrease the red pepper. Also I used 1.5 tsp Italian season in place of oregano and basil. I copied another reviewers advice and made a glaze out of the juices and some cornstarch, yes!!!! Also I personally think the green beans need more time. Overall kids and husband approved.

  127. We didn’t care for this, not a lot of flavor, trying to think 
    How I can improve it!

    This was a good recipe for a cold January night.  I followed the directions using skinless, boneless chicken breasts and cooked on high for 4 hrs.  I didn’t baste except stirred juices over the beans when added for the last 30 minutes.  It looked nice plated with the parsley on top.   My family especially enjoyed the chicken.  I think it would be even better served with a warm, crusty French bread.

    • Rated 5 out of 5

      This was perfect but for two minor tweaks: a) I think the chicken is meant to go on the bottom, because I did carrots and potatoes on bottom like I always do for pot roast and most of the flavor went to the veggies; and b) the green beans weren’t cooked all the way. I did this on high for four hours and in all my other recipes that means cut the cook time in half. Didn’t work here. Other than that, I think I found a new favorite!

  130. Rated 5 out of 5

    Thought it was really good. I used 1/3 cup honey, 1/8 spoon of pepper flakes, one cube of basil pesto, 2 t. Italian seasoning and 1 cup of water to make it easier to marinade chicken.

    I never cook and this was my first crock pot attempt. Bought the device to make things easy for my wife and family and I tried this for everyone. Not exactly sure everyone’s issues with receipe and cooking suggestions but I followed the instructions to the letter and the food was delicious. I did not have time to baste but didn’t matter. Everything was cooked perfectly. Thanks for a very nice receipe.

    This is excellent, use Worcestershire instead of soy. I always add more honey. I bake it for one hour at three 350 then put the green beans in for another 30. Very tasty!

    So easy. So delicious. The whole family loved it.

  134. Love love love this recipe made it many times if you follow the directions exactly as stated it’s wonderful I do omit the beans though and does anyone know if you can freeze this 2 days after you’ve made it as I have plenty of it

  135. Looking good!!! Great flavor and cooked slowly for 8 hours.  Very tender and delicious sauce which I thicken ed with a little corn starch and set slow cooker on high for 15 minute, was perfection.

  136. I haven’t tried the recipe yet, although it looks very tasty.   I do have a slow cooker with a high and low  setting.  Is there a difference when cooking something either way, and the outcome?  This is with the recommendations for either way to cook.

    • The difference between the two settings is the simmer point, the time it takes to bring all the contents of your slow cooker just below the boiling point (about 209 degrees). On the low setting, the time it takes to reach the simmer point is around 7-8 hrs. For the high setting, it takes around 3-4 hrs. Hope that helps!

    Great recipe thank you

  138. Made for the first time this weekend. Cooked as directed with the exception of chicken breasts instead of thighs. And I used red pepper cayenne, thinking it was same thing as crushed red pepper! (NOT the same) but mine sure had a kick to it! We loved it. I will definitely make it again, and try with the right red pepper! Also on slow for 7 hours, the chicken was a bit dry. So maybe with the right ingredients it would be better, but we really liked it the way it turned out!
