Honey Chicken & Veg

Jump to Recipe

Chicken and vegetables is always a win! Chicken and veg in the slow cooker is even better when you get to come home and have dinner just about ready. What’s great about this Honey Chicken & Veg is how much flavor you get out of it and that it is an all-in-one meal. The potatoes, carrots, and green beans are all ready at the same time as the chicken – resulting in one of the easiest meals you will make all year!

This is a lot to put into a slow cooker – so you need at least a 7 quart one. You need at least that much depth and width. You want to try to lay out the veggies in a layer and then the chicken in a single layer, as best you can.

I used skin on, bone in chicken thighs for this recipe and I really think you should. But if you usually like breasts (white meat), you will need to at least do whole chicken breast – with the bone in. The bone gives a lot of the flavor to the recipe.

  2. Liz @ spades, spatulas, and spoons – Oakland, CA – I live in Northern California of the USA, splitting my time between our home and large garden on the coast in Fort Bragg and a smaller place outside San Francisco. I have always love spending time in the kitchen, sharing meals with family and friends. My English born mother was educated in France and ran one of the first traditional French cooking schools in Florida, I learned by being her sous chef and eventually teaching classes with her. Three years ago I was proud to earn my certificate as a Mendocino County Master Gardener, although I had already been gardening in Oakland (ornamental and veggies) for 25 years. There is always so much to learn. I am starting the garden in Fort Bragg and am looking forward to sharing my progress. My family on both sides have always gardened. I have fond memories of my grandparent's garden outside London; and digging potatoes with my father in his vegetable garden in Florida. My education is in microbiology; I worked in labs and biotech for 25 years, often traveling extensively for work. But even with a busy schedule I have managed to have a few of my own fresh vegetables in the back garden. Welcome and thank you for coming along.
