Sweet and savory and a complete one pot meal with chicken breasts, potatoes, broccoli and carrots and a homemade honey garlic sauce!
- 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
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, toss together potatoes, carrots and canola oil.
Microwave on high for 7 to 9 minutes, until somewhat tender (about half-cooked—they will continue cooking in the slow cooker).
Add chicken breasts to a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker and top with potatoes and carrots. Season with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, stir together tomato paste, vinegar, honey, garlic, soy sauce, chicken broth and corn starch.
Pour half of the mixture over chicken and vegetables in the slow cooker. Keep the other half in the fridge.
Cover slow cooker and cook for three hours on high (or about six hours on low).
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.
Meanwhile, pour remaining sauce into a small pot and cook over medium heat, whisking often, until thickened. Serve chicken and vegetables with extra sauce.
