How to Make Honey Glazed Chicken in the Slow Cooker

by Karen Larard

My brother and sister in law is coming to stay a few days. I want to make something that is quick and easy so I can be with them and not with the pots and pans. The last picture is not mine.

Supplies

  • 2 Free ranged chickens
  • 1 Cup Honey
  • ½ Cups Soy sauce
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 2 Tablespoons Oyster sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • ½ Teaspoons Chili powder
  • 1 Large onion.
  • ¼ Cups Ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Part of the ingredients, see tab for quantity and the rest of what to use⬇

    Step 2

    Mix the soy sauce with honey, minced garlic, olive oil, chilli powder, oyster sauce and ketchup. Set aside.

    Step 3

    Use whole chickens, you get more meat for your money. Start cutting it up along side the chest bone. Then cut along one side of the spine, splitting the bird in two parts

    Step 4

    Cut of the thigh by cutting down to the bone

    Step 5

    Find the joint and cut the thigh off there, this way you don't get splinters of bone.

    Step 6

    Step 7

    Joint.

    Step 8

    Upper thigh

    Step 9

    Drumstick and middle of the thigh. Again cut in the joint.

    Step 10

    Cut the spine of.

    Step 11

    Your knife needs to be sharp.

    Step 12

    Wing. Cut the tip of and add that bit to the bones.

    Step 13

    Joint at the tip of the wing

    Step 14

    Clean cut with no bone splinters.

    Step 15

    Cut the wing off the side of the bird, cut in the joint. You can see the joint where I have cut thru the skin.

    Step 16

    If you imagine this is an arm then this is the under and over arm. Cut in the joint.

    Step 17

    Bend the joint the " wrong " way and cut from that side.

    Step 18

    Wing cut in two.

    Step 19

    Cut the breast in two.

    Step 20

    Remove the breast bone using your fingers.

    Step 21

    Sorry the focus is on the knife and not on the breast bone.

    Step 22

    All the bones and the wingtips is going in the pot to become chicken stock for another meal.

    Step 23

    Your chicken should now look like this. You can remove the skin if you like.

    Step 24

    Cut the other chicken in the same way and put all the pieces in the crock pot.

    Step 25

    Dice your onion and put it on top of the chicken. If you leave the top of the onion on before chopping it, it is easier to handle.

    Step 26

    Add the sauce.

    Step 27

    Cook on low for 4 hours. Stir one or two times.

    Step 28

    Remove the chicken pieces after 4 hours and strain the sauce into a pot. Reduce a bit and add cornstarch if you want a thicker sauce. Add salt if nessesery. Serve with rice and your favoured salad.
