If you’re new to my blog, making slow cooker recipes is part of my Sunday routine! There’s just nothing like being able to dump ingredients and go about my day so I can have time to prepare for the week ahead.

Today, I’m bringing to you an easy chicken thigh slow cooker recipe that’s made in a yummy honey-garlic BBQ sauce! 

It comes together in five easy steps, and let me tell you, my four boys were scraping the bottom of their bowls!!!  

I served it with rice and it was definitely giving Asian vibes. It made me wish I owned a pair of reusable chopsticks, so I will the next time I make this!

Ingredients Needed:

Chicken Thighs: we use boneless, skinless, chicken thighs because they are more tender and flavorful than breasts.

Honey: adds a little sweetness to the sauce for the chicken thighs.

Garlic, Minced: you could use store-bought minced garlic too!

Barbecue Sauce: you can use any kind that you’d like but my favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s. 

Salt & Pepper is all we use to season the chicken. You can adjust the seasonings to your taste!

Green Onions: optional, but the perfect garnish for this Honey-Garlic Chicken. 

How to Make Slow Cooker Honey-Garlic Chicken

  1. Lightly coat your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add boneless chicken thighs and season them with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In a small separate bowl, combine 1 cup of barbecue sauce, ½ cup of honey, and 3 gloves minced garlic and whisk together. 
  4. Pour the honey-garlic sauce over the chicken thighs. 
  5. Cover with the lid and set to LOW for 6 hours or HIGH for 4 hours, depending on your slow cooker.
  6. Garnish with chopped green onions and serve!

Chicken thighs can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days. You can even make cleanup a breeze with disposable slow cooker liners.
