Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a party or potluck dish featuring, you know it, one of my favorite kitchen tools; the slow cooker.  All you do is put the chicken thighs (love that dark meat!), into your slow cooker, add a few ingredients that makes a delicious, smoky sauce, and turn it on and forget it for 6+ hours;  giving you lots of time to do everything else!  I first made this for a guest and husband to tide them over while I was away for several days; and I was gratified that they both loved it.  Easy and yummy, you gotta love it!

Diff:  Easy     Prep:  10 min

Cook:  6 Hours     Serves:  8


  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • 1 cup ketchup

  • 2/3 cup honey

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons dried basil or 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped finely


  • Place chicken thighs into the bottom of an 8-10 quart slow cooker.

  • Mix soy sauce, ketchup, honey, garlic, and basil together in a bowl; pour over chicken.

  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.  

  • Serve chicken over noodles or rice.

I hope you enjoy this smoky, mahogany colored chicken. This should be a big hit at a summer potluck or picnic.  Just be sure to pack some napkins as this makes a lot of sauce!  

Until the next time, wishing you all of God’s blessings, good health and happy eating!

Smiles and blessings,
