20 mins
3 hours


  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Slow cooker
  • Medium bowl


  • 3/4 lb Little Potatoes, halved
  • 6 oz baby carrots or sliced carrots
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • (To taste) salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup liquid honey
  • 5 tsp garlic, minced
  • 5 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 Tbsp corn starch
  • 3/4 cup broccoli florets
  • 3/4 cup stringless snap peas, chopped, optional


  • Step 1

    In a medium microwave-safe bowl, toss together potatoes, carrots and canola oil.

  • Step 2

    Microwave on high for 7 to 9 minutes, until somewhat tender (about half-cooked—they will continue cooking in the slow cooker).

  • Step 3

    Add chicken breasts to a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker and top with potatoes and carrots. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 4

    In a medium bowl, stir together tomato paste, vinegar, honey, garlic, soy sauce, chicken broth and corn starch.

  • Step 5

    Pour half of the mixture over chicken and vegetables in the slow cooker. Keep the other half in the fridge.

  • Step 6

    Cover slow cooker and cook for three hours on high (or about six hours on low).

  • Step 7

    Add broccoli and snap peas to the slow cooker (don’t stir—they will steam), cover and cook for another 30 to 45 minutes until tender-crisp and chicken is cooked through.

  • Step 8

    Meanwhile, pour remaining sauce into a small pot and cook over medium heat, whisking often, until thickened. Serve chicken and vegetables with extra sauce.
