Ingredients for Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken
Here’s what you will need to make this delicious entree:
How to Make Honey Mustard Chicken
Start by adding the chicken to your slow cooker. Season it with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients to create the honey mustard sauce. Pour over the chicken and flip to coat both sides. Set your slow cooker and let it go.
When the chicken is cooked through, use two forks to shred it and toss again in the sauce. It will seem like a lot of sauce at first but once you get the chicken coated it will be perfect.
How to Serve
My personal favorite way to serve this slow cooker honey mustard chicken is on a heaping pile of mashed potatoes with a steamed or roasted veggie on the side.
A side salad would also be a delicious option.
Make Ahead Options
This reheats really well so it’s a great option to consider if you meal prep. Roast some vegetables while it’s in the slow cooker and make a batch of rice and you’ll be set for lunches for the week.
This is also a great option for the freezer. You have two options here.
First, add the chicken to a freezer safe bag or container. Whisk up the sauce and add it over the chicken then freeze. Then all you have to do is thaw and dump in the slow cooker in the morning.
The second option is freezing after you’ve cooked it. Let the chicken cool completely then place in a freezer safe container. Freeze for up to 1 month.
