Between not having power to the oven and stove top, to being out of electricity all together, meal prep has been quite the struggle the last couple weekends! Since skipping meal prep is clearly not an option though, I found this new slow cooker recipe to try, utilized my trusty Instant Pot, and moved my meal prep to where there was power (thank you to Debbie if you are reading this!!). This Crockpot Garlic Honey Chicken is pretty similar to the Instant Pot Honey Garlic Chicken recipe I’ve posted before, but this one has some added vegetables to it, aka more nutrients! I used boneless chicken thighs for this one and thought the meal turned out really well! My only complaint is that thickening the sauce up in the slow cooker seemed impossible. After about 45 minutes I decided to just throw it on the stove top on high instead, which worked much better. I served this over straight up plain cauliflower rice (seriously just used the frozen bag you can pop in the microwave) since there was plenty of sauce to go on top, but feel free to serve over rice, a mixture of cauliflower rice and regular rice, or whatever you please. This meal was delicious, super easy to throw together, and will most likely go into my rotation of weekly meal prep recipes!
