Garlic Honey Chicken – Freezer to Crockpot Meal
A few weeks ago I picked up my Zaycon Fresh order of amazing chicken, so my neighbor and I were on a mission to make some delicious freezer to crockpot meals. This was the first one my family tried and my son said “Mom, I think this is your best chicken recipe yet!” I love it when I get praise like that 🙂
I love garlic and I love honey, so in my mind this recipe was going to be fabulous! The garlic is not over-powering at all, and the honey adds a bit of sweetness. As you can see, I served mine on a bed of beautifully sauteed veggies. My kids skipped out of the zucchini and squash and opted for rice 😉
Now, here is my Garlic Honey Chicken Crockpot recipe. You don’t HAVE to make it as a freezer to crockpot meal, if you opt to not do it that way, just place all the ingredients into the crockpot and cook it for the specified time.

- ⅔ cup ketchup
- ¼ cup honey
- Place all the ingredients into a ziploc bag

- When ready to use, thaw overnight and cook on low for 5-7 hrs
- When chicken is tender shred with forks or break apart with spoons and let sit in juices in crockpot for at least 1 hour to insure it is moist

I mentioned that I got my chicken from Zaycon Fresh (as a Zaycon Fresh blogger I was able to receive this order for free, all opinions and this recipe are mine however!), have you heard of them before? They deliver Farm Fresh to YOU. They have everything from chicken to bacon available at different times during the year at prices you can’t beat. My chicken was just $1.69 per pound! I don’t know what it is around you, but most grocery stores around Tampa are at about $4.99 – $5.99! There was no way I was missing out on $1.69 😉 You can learn more about Zaycon Fresh HERE.
I mentioned that I sauteed my vegetables for this Garlic Honey Chicken Recipe, I used orange bell pepper, zucchini, and squash. My seasoning was Original Mrs. Dash and just about a tablespoon of Olive Oil. They were the perfect compliment to the chicken.
I hope you and your family enjoy this Garlic Honey Chicken Crockpot Meal as much as we did…In fact, I hope you get told it is your family’s favorite new Chicken Recipe too!
