.honey garlic chicken.

This meal was so beyond easy and delicious AND healthy. Triple win and even better because its a crockpot meal. I love anything in a crockpot. The original recipe with amazing pictures can be found here. I changed it up a bit and made it more suitable for my lazy ways. Try it yourself and enjoy!

3 large chicken breasts (I used frozen)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup blackberry jam
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
Sliced scallions, for garnish
Sesame seeds, for garnish

Arrange the chicken breasts in the slow cooker so that they are not overlapping. In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, blackberry jam, hoisin, olive oil, garlic, onion and crushed red pepper flakes, and then pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover the slow cooker and cook the chicken on LOW for 4 to 5 hours until the chicken is fully cooked. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of cold water to make a slurry. Shred chicken and mix in cornstarch, let cook for another 15-30 minutes. Serve the chicken topped with sliced scallions and sesame seeds.
