Food Friday - Slow Cooker Honey Ginger Chicken

Slow Cooker Honey Ginger Chicken 
adapted from Mommy Hates Cooking
So, this is an awesome recipe but I have a few things I changed.  One, I used pork instead of chicken, two, I did not put ginger in the recipe (we are not ginger fans) and three, I did not have any cornstarch on hand so the sauce was thin.  BUT the flavor, wow, it is good.  I put a pork loin in the crock and then after about 6 hours, I pulled it out and cut it into "chops", laying the chops down in the sauce - perfection!  The pork was fork tender and the sauce was the right combination of salty and sweet.  I can't wait to make it again! 


  • 2-4 Medium Size Chicken Breast (Use your preference on boneless or bone-in/skinless or with skin)
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce or Gluten Free Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 Clove Crushed Garlic
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 8oz Can of Pineapple Chunks, Reserve Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • Cooked Rice (optional)


  1. Spray a 5 quart slow cooker with non stick cooking spray.
  2. Place chicken in the slow cooker. Then add in the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic, ginger, and pineapple juice. Save the chunks to garnish the dish at the end.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Once done, remove the chicken and place on a plate. Then, stir the juice in the slow cooker (sauce) with cornstarch to thicken it just a bit.
  5. Serve the chicken over a bed of rice, garnish with pineapple chunks and drizzle with sauce.
