This kid-friendly sticky honey chicken is cooked in the convenience of the slow cooker and only needs 5 ingredients -winner, winner!


  • 8 (about 1.5kg) chicken thigh cutlets, skin on
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) Capilano Dark & Bold Honey
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) light soy sauce
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) tomato sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Fresh coriander sprigs, to serve
  • Steamed greens (such as baby bok choy and snow peas), to serve
  • Steamed jasmine rice, to serve

Step 1
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken, skin-side down, and cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
Step 2
Meanwhile, combine the honey, soy sauce, tomato sauce and garlic in a small bowl.
Step 3
Pour 125ml (1/2 cup) water into a slow cooker, to just cover the base. Arrange the chicken, skin-side up, and as close to a single layer as you can manage. Brush generously with the sauce mixture, then pour in the remaining mixture.
Step 4
Cover and cook on Low, carefully rearranging the chicken pieces halfway through cooking to place any that were on top underneath, for 6 hours.
Step 5
Sprinkle chicken with coriander and serve with steamed greens and rice.

TIP:  Any leftover chicken can be used in sandwiches. Simply shred the meat off the bone and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
