Slow Cooker Asian Honey Chicken! Tender, flavor-packed chicken slow-cooked in a delicious, Asian-inspired sauce for hours. This easy, weeknight meal is gluten-free, soy-free, and so tasty!
- 3–4 chicken breasts
- 1/3 cup of chicken or vegetable broth
- 1/3 cup of coconut aminos
- 2 tbsp of arrowroot flour
- 2 tsp of raw honey (optional)
- 1–2 tsp of a good quality salt
- 1/2 tsp of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
- 1/4 tsp of pepper
- Combine broth, coconut aminos, raw honey, ginger, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Place chicken at the bottom of slow cooker and cover with mixture. Cook on low for 6 hours or until chicken can easily be pulled apart with a fork.
- Once chicken is done cooking, take it out of the slow cooker and shred it. Add the liquid remaining in the slow cooker to a saucepan and bring that to a slow boil.
- Mix together 2 tbsp of arrowroot powder with 4 tbsp of cold water. Stir until there are no lumps and add to saucepan once it reaches a slow boil.
- Reduce heat and let simmer for a few minutes while stirring to allow the sauce to thicken. Remove from heat and combine the shredded chicken with the sauce.
This dish is one of my FAVORITE things to include in my weekly meal prep. Throughout the week I use it for a variety of lunches and dinners such as paired with rice and avocado, in a grain-free tortilla with avocado, cilantro, and lime, and with roasted sweet potato and green beans (yum!).
