Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

We had a quick lunch at the mall the other day and I had some honey garlic chicken at the Chinese place. It was so tasty, I thought how can I make that a meal at home? Unfortunately, that means taking out the deep fried batter part, but a sticky honey and garlic sauce that's home-made is just as great!

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

8-10 Chicken Thighs
1 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Honey
8 cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tbsp Cornstarch
1/4 cup Water

Place chicken in the bottom of a crock pot. For a crispy skin, turn the chicken thighs skin-side down in a hot skillet until browned. Combine ketchup, soy sauce, honey and garlic in a bowl and pour over chicken.
Cook in a slow cooker for 6 hours on low. 

About 1/2 hour before serving, skim the oil off the top (from the ketchup and the chicken). Combine cornstarch and water and mix well into sauce. Replace lid and let cook for 1/2 hour. Sauce will get a bit thicker as it cools, so let it sit without heat for 5-10 minutes and stir well before serving.

These were really yummy and the kids devoured it.
