  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts* uncooked
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
Optional toppings
  • Green onion thinly sliced
  • Cilantro chopped
  • Sesame seeds
  1. Grease your crockpot with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together sauce ingredients: broth, honey, Sriracha, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ground ginger, and black pepper. Taste and re-season, to taste.*
  3. Pour half the sauce into crockpot.
  4. Place chicken into crockpot.
  5. Pour the rest of the sauce over the chicken.
  6. Place the lid on and cook on LOW for 3 hours.
  7. After 3 hours, remove chicken from crockpot and set aside.
  8. Slowly whisk the cornstarch into the sauce until well combined.
  9. Cut the chicken into large chunks and place back into crockpot.
  10. Cook on HIGH, covered, for an additional hour***
  11. Serve with your choice of rice (or quinoa) and additional toppings and enjoy!

*This is spicy, but that’s the point! Not a fan? Try adding half as much sriracha OR add an extra 1/4 cup of honey. Taste the mixture BEFORE cooking it, so you can get the perfect sweet/spicy combo for you!
**Gluten free? Be sure to use a GF soy sauce or a GF alternative!
***Want the sauce thicker? Keep your slow cooker on the “warm” setting” after cook time has completed with the lid off. It’ll thicken as it sits.
