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
