  • 6 to 8 chicken legs
  • 2 tsp garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce (reduced sodium is fine if you prefer)
  • 1 tsp onion, minced fine (or onion powder is fine)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • garnish: green onion and sesame seeds


  1. With the minced onions and pepper season the chicken. 

  2. Next, pour the chicken broth into the slow cooker and place seasoned chicken on top. 

  3. In a bowl add your honey, garlic, soy sauce, and mix well. Pour this mixture over your chicken. 

  4. Set to low for 5-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked. Once the chicken is cooked remove from slow cooker. Mix the cornstarch and water together and stir into the sauce in slow cooker.  

  5. Place chicken back into the slow cooker and turn to high for 20 minutes. This will thicken the sauce. 

  6. When finished serve on a bed of rice if you would like and garnish.
