Candy and Chicken? Not quite but this tastes so sweet and yummy you will gobble it up just as you would candy! The honey, garlic ketchup and tamari make the perfect glaze for this chicken. You can use whatever chicken parts you like best but in this house thighs are the winner! I love the ease of this recipe, too. Plus there is no searing of the chicken required which is a pleasure! Just dump it all in the crockpot and go about your day for 6 hours! Then, you’ll have the best chicken ever waiting for you. We love to shred this up. It is also fabulous in tacos!
Slow Cooker Candy Chicken
