Slow Cooker Honey-Garlic Chicken and Vegetables Recipe

The time of year does not matter, nor does the time of day – when this honey and garlic chicken with vegetables is done simmering for 6-8 hours, all you need to do is serve yourself a bowl, allow it ample time to chill, and dig in.

It really doesn’t matter if it is for breakfast, or lunch at work; just enjoy it for all the spoon- or forkfuls it is worth. See, there we go, not caring again!

If you are cooking for a smaller crowd with diverse tastes, or for some sensitive eaters, everyone will find a bite that they love in here, and although the asparagus will surprise some people at the first bite, all will be well in the end.

Why? Well, we can only assume it is because of the combination of chicken stock, homemade ketchup, coconut aminos, and raw honey that makes all the ingredients harmonize strikingly together. It’s bowl-licking good, and we’ll leave it at that.

Being a complete meal on its own, you may want to call the dinner done. Or you may still see that the garden is greener on the other side, in which case you will want to create a side salad to bring in some wonderful micro-nutrients.

How about a beet, broccoli, and mache salad with almond vinaigrette for starters? Or a more exotic salad of mixed greens, fennel, and pear to add more texture and contrast to your masterpiece?
