As I’ve said before, one of my faveourite things to do is prep a crockpot meal, turn it on and go to work. And that’s what I did again today. To be fair, yesterday I did a major grocery shop and I was in no mood to prep the crockpot (we had A&W for dinner instead of some of the fresh groceries that I bought, I was that had), so I got up a half hour early this morning to throw this recipe together.
Recipe is from Pinterest and not my own, this is the link: Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies
As you can see in the recipe it calls for green beans in the last half hour of cook time. As you can see in my picture…those are peas. You see, the last half hour of cook time (I did 8 hours) I was still at work. But my darling darling boyfriend, apple of my eye, love of my life, darling man, was home. He doesn’t do a lot of cooking. And he worked today as well. So naturally after asking him this morning to add the green beans at 5:30, he promptly forgot what I asked. So at 5:30 I got a text asking what he was supposed to add. I didn’t read the text until almost 6 as I was working. My boyfriend, darling darling man, love of my life, apple of my eye, added peas instead of beans. And here we are.
So this is my first time trying this recipe. And it is quite tasty. I will make it again. The one thing I would change is to make a point of actually having low sodium soy sauce. I only had regular and personally, that was my mistake. Also, I think I would use a bit less soy sauce next time as it is quite the dominant flavour. Or, I would maybe not make the sauce at all and just use VH Honey Garlic sauce from the store.
I’ve avoided cooking chicken thighs for quite a few years now because I hard a hard time cooking them through, but they cooked thoroughly during the 8 hours in my crockpot. It should be noted that they were thawed and not frozen chicken thighs.
