A slow-cooking chicken dish that will soon become a family favorite. It tastes like honey garlic chicken wings that I ate before my celiac diagnosis. Except now, it's gluten-free and I know exactly what's in it. Simply mix up the ingredients, pop it in the crock pot, and you’ll have a tasty meal ready by dinner time.


Celiac.com 10/04/2013 - I crave this dish all of the time! I’m certainly no top-chef when it comes to preparing chicken on the grill so I’ve recently turned to the crock pot. I have to admit, I was pretty impressed with myself after making it. The sweet and saltiness with a hint of herbs paired nicely with tender meat that fell right off the bone. Simply mix up the ingredients, pop it in the crock pot, and you’ll have a tasty meal ready by dinner time.

  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons basil
  • 1/2 cup of liquid aminos (less sodium and no msg) or gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup Ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3-4 cloves of minced garlic
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Procedure:

Place chicken in crock pot. Stir the ingredients together in a separate bowl. Pour evenly over chicken thighs. Turn to high and cook for 3 hours. I flipped each side after 1 ½ hours but that’s optional.

Serve chicken and sauce on top of Jasmine rice and baked zucchini with thyme.

For a crispy outside, place on a baking sheet and broil for about 4 minutes or until desired.

Enjoy!

This is also great for weekly meal prep: simply combine the ingredients and freeze them. Thaw it out the night before, toss in the crock pot the next morning, and slow cook for 6 hours. Yum!
