Crock Pot Honey Ginger Chicken Bowls

Crock pot honey ginger chicken bowls 1_small

This one was a hit — I’m talkin’ capital H-I-T — with the kiddos. They liked it as much as the Honey Sesame Chicken from last year.

This is not one of those Crock-Pot recipes that can simmer all day. It only takes 2 hours in the cooker, so it’s best started during nap time and finished right before dinner. But it reheats beautifully, so don’t be afraid to make it early and refrigerate, then give it a quick zap right before serving. (I’d make the rice fresh though.)

Tender chicken coated in honey, garlic, soy sauce and maple syrup and tossed with pineapple, peppers and green onions? Now that’s a lot of flavor for one crock pot dish!
