{Slow Cooker} Honey Soy Chicken

  • Total Time: 2 hours 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha (more or less depending desired level of spiciness)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Cooked brown or white rice
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped, for garnish

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Generously season chicken with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add chicken and sear until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  2. Remove chicken from skillet and add to a slow cooker coated with nonstick cooking spray. Stir pineapple juice into skillet and scrap up any browned bits stuck in the pan using a wooden spoon. Remove skillet from heat and stir in honey, soy sauce, sriracha, and garlic powder. Pour mixture over chicken in slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for approximately 2 1/2 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from slow cooker and increase heat to high. Combine water with cornstarch in a small bowl and add to slow cooker, stirring until fully incorporated. Cook for a few minutes, until the sauce thickens a bit. Return chicken to slow cooker to coat with sauce.
