The healthiest slow cooker chicken dish that doesn’t need sautéing or watching over.
You should always make it a point to have veggies in your meal. It could be incorporate din the dish itself or you could prepare a completely separate veggie dish to pair with your main dish. And yes, having veggies as part of your diet is very essential to your health.
This is a great dish if you want your kids to have veggies as part of their meal. That is if you have kids. My kids are quite easy to feed, even with veggies around. Well, of course took quite a while to make them get used to eating all types of veggies but all the hard work was all worth it.
But then again, since they were infants, I would usually mash different veggies that I could feed them with. So they are very familiar with the flavors already. Its just that as they grew older and learned to eat meat, they have preferred meat or veggies most of the time. Thus, incorporating a whole lot of veggies in every meal is a must.
This recipe does that for me. It’s a super easy slow cooker recipe that will free you up to do any errand you need to do in between. The honey and garlic flavor will not only give flavor to the chicken but an aroma that you will look for once your meal is all eaten up.
