Need something easy for dinner? This slow cooker honey garlic chicken will be done in just 4 hours with hardly any prep!

Once in a blue moon… I make a new meal that the ENTIRE family devours. Folks, this is one of those meals. This slow cooker honey garlic chicken is sweet, a teensy bit spicy, and packed full of flavor. My 20 month old probably ate about a pound of it.

This recipe is part of an AMAZING slow cooker dump meal plan!

Best of all, this is a ‘dump recipe'. What I mean by that is that you just dump all the ingredients in the slow cooker and then turn it on. And there really aren't many ingredients either…

I mean, I could do a step-by-step with pictures along the way, but why? You literally just throw it in the slow cooker, and then shred with a fork when it's done.

This recipe lends itself for a perfect freezer meal too!
