Chinese Barbecue Chicken

The slow cooker isn’t just for easy week night meals; it’s also great for busy weekends! When my friend and I get together or my mother-in-law is in town for quilting weekends we throw together a slow cooker meal before hunkering down in the “sweat shop” for the day.  (I like to tell my husband I’m “Super Wife” on these days.)

I served these with rice and fresh green beans. The leftovers were turned into sandwiches.

Chinese Barbecue Chicken

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 scallions, sliced

Steps:

  1. Combine honey, soy sauce, hoisin, jam, oil, and garlic.
  2. Place chicken in slow cooker. Cover with onion and sauce. Cook on LOW 4 1/2 hours.
