Slow Cooker Honey Chicken

I know this picture is terrible.  But that is because the food was so good!  It was so good, that I forgot to take a picture until there was nothing left in the slow cooker but the dregs.  And it was so good that I still wanted to take a picture so that I would be sure and post it.  Just imagine it, surrounded with fluffy white rice and healthy veggies and a piece or two of chicken that doesn't look like there is seaweed hanging off the bottom of it.  That's how yummy it was.   It was also very easy and actually very fast, considering it was done in a slow cooker.  The recipe said 1 1/2 hours on high or 3 hours on low and I didn't believe it.  You should believe it.  

Slow Cooker Honey Chicken
adapted from:

4 chicken breasts (cut them into thirds, or you can use chicken fingers, like I did)
1 c. honey
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. ketchup
1 1/2 Tbsp. dried, chopped onion
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Combine all the ingredients in a crock pot and stir it until it is mixed well.  Add the chicken and cook it on high for 1 1/2 hours or on low for 3-4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through.  Serve it with rice and make sure to take a picture before it looks un-appetizing!
