What ingredients do I need for this recipe?

This recipe only requires 5 ingredients. One thing I love about the ingredients in this recipe is that it's combining several typical pantry ingredients to make something new and delicious! Here's what you'll need:

  • Chicken breast - This recipe calls for 2 lbs of chicken breast (or about 3 large ones). I've used raw and frozen chicken for this recipe and both work.
  • Sriracha - This will add some spice to the sauce!
  • Honey - To contrast with the spice, the honey will add some sweetness.
  • Coconut aminos or soy sauce - Either one of these sauces will add a little salty and sweet flavor to the sauce.
  • Garlic powder - Adding a small amount of garlic will make a big difference!

Can I make substitutions for this recipe?

I usually stick to the recipe, but there are some substitutions you can make based on dietary preferences and what you have available in your fridge. I haven't tried any of these substitutions but let me know if you do!

  • Chicken breast - Raw or frozen chicken will work for this recipe. Instead of chicken breast, you can try chicken thighs.
  • Sriracha - The is key to the recipe so I would recommend using this.
  • Honey - Honey is another key ingredient, but if you don't like honey or you're out, you could try a maple syrup.
  • Coconut aminos or soy sauce - Either one of these will work great for the sauce.
  • Garlic powder - You could use fresh garlic if you have that! I usually just use a powder because it's easier .

What equipment do I need for this recipe?

The only equipment you need for this recipe is a slow cooker. All you need to do is dump everything into a slow cooker and let it cook!

LOVED this recipe. Adding into my rotation. Made it for my meal prepped quinoa bowls and I couldn’t wait to eat it for lunch. Also had some leftovers for dinner. I put it in a salad, and my fiancé put the chicken in tacos. So many ways to use it. Thank you for sharing this recipe, definitely a keeper!

This was delicious! It is spicy (as you would expect) and very flavorful! I served it over roasted brussel sprouts but it would also be great on a tortilla!
