Its been snowing since last night, it’s cold and unfortunately I have house cleaning to do, but part of making me happy while being snowed in…….making dinner and posting on my most favorite blog. This recipe called for all things comfort but of course I went my own way to make it mine. I omitted white vinegar (2 tablespoons) and I added Apple cider vinegar instead (1 tablespoon). I also used local honey from an Amish topiary close to town, and I added an extra clove of minced garlic.
SERVES: 4-6 Cook: 6-7 hours on LOW; 4-5 on HIGH
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 – 2 1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)
1/4 cup mustard
1 tbsp. Apple cider vinegar
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp black pepper
OPTIONAL: To thicken sauce, add the ingredients below in a cup then pour in slow cooker 1 hour before chicken is finished cooking.
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp cornstarch
Place chicken breasts in slow cooker. Turn slow cooker on LOW. Meanwhile, whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, mustard, vinegar, and black pepper until well blended. Pour over chicken, cover, and cook for 6-7 hours.
You can serve this over pasta, shred or cube it and serve over rice and vegetables, or shred it and serve on sandwich buns!
**We shredded it and put it on a hoagie bun with bell peppers and onions!
