 Ingredients List

  • 3 lbs Chicken Legs or Thighs
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce, low sodium
  • 2 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp Ginger, grated
  • 4 - 5 lg Garlic Cloves, pressed or finely minced
  • 2 Tbsp Onion, finely minced
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • To Thicken (whisk together):
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 3 Tbsp Cold Water
  • To Serve:
  • 4 cups Cooked Rice
  • Sesame Seeds for Garnish
  • Chopped Scallions for Garnish


Spray the inside of the crock. Turn on to Low setting.

Salt and pepper all sides of the chicken.

Add the water to the crock, then place the chicken in there as well. Place the lid on so it starts warming up.

In a 2 cup measuring cup, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, ginger, garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes. Pour over the chicken.

Cook on Low for 2-3 hours (check after 2 hours). Cook time may vary, by size of chicken, and/or your slow cooker.

Remove chicken to a plate and cover. Turn the slow cooker to High setting.

Whisk together the corn starch and cold water. Add to the liquid in the crock and stir.

Add the chicken back into the crock and cook on High until thickened (usually 10 to 15 minutes) and internal temperature of chicken is 165°.

Serve over cooked rice, garnished with sesame seeds, scallions, and/or cilantro.
