Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken

Once again the slow cooker is saving dinner in our house!

I had to make this twice to get it right. The first time I used equal amounts honey and wholegrain mustard. It was at once too sweet and too grainy. Less honey, different mustards and the addition of garlic give it a more rounded savoury flavour.

I add a touch of stock to the bottom of the pan for two reasons: a) so the honey doesn’t catch and make a washing up nightmare and b) mixed with the cooking juice you have a ready made sauce to spoon over your meal. Just make sure it isn’t covering your chicken you just want it to just cover the bottom.

Just a note about your chicken thighs. Mine had both the skin and bone on – but the boned version will work just as well.

Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken

  • I packet chicken thighs
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic- grated or finely sliced
  • 100-200ml chicken stock

As you can see, quite a bit of fat and juice came out of this chicken when cooking but it all added to a delicious sauce to spoon over the finished dish

What you do

  • In a bowl mix together the honey, mustards and garlic
  • Add your chicken and mix well with your clean hands to ensure all the meat is covered
  • Pour just enough hot stock into your slow cooker so that the bottom is just covered
  • Add the chicken and any of the honey mustard sauce left in the bowl
  • Lid on. Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  • Spoon over the ‘pan’ juices when serving
