Amy in VA’s Crockpot Honey Mustard Chicken

Crockpot Honey Mustard Chicken

Fill your crockpot with chicken parts.

Dump on top:

½ cup honey
¼ cup of Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp of curry powder
1 tsp salt

Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours. Give it all a really good stir about an hour or two into the cooking time, then put the lid back on and leave it alone. This is not a strong curry flavor. Skim the fat and serve with rice.

Stir into juices remaining in crockpot. Increase heat to high and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Serve chicken with sauce, plain yogurt and chutney.

Amy in VA’s Crockpot Chicken Adobo

Chicken Adobo

1 onion (chopped)
4 cloves garlic
3/4 c soy sauce
1/2 c apple cider vinegar

Combine sauce ingredients. Pour over 2 – 5 lbs of chicken. The chicken must have skin and bones or it will be too strong. (I used 4 chicken leg quarters). Cook in crockpot for 6 – 8 hours on low. (I turned them a few times so all parts of the chicken were in the sauce for a while) Serve hot. (I thickened some of the juices with some flour water or cornstarch on the stove and poured over). It sounds weird but is great.

Amy in VA’s Crockpot Garlic Chicken

Crockpot Garlic Chicken

1 (3 to 3 1/2 lb.) whole chicken
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 large onion, sliced
1 medium bulb garlic (about 20 cloves)

Remove giblets from chicken; remove as much fat as possible. Rinse and drain chicken; pat dry inside and out with paper towels (I have used chicken parts too, but use the ones with skin and bone, not the boneless). In a small bowl, combine salt, paprika, and pepper. Spread evenly over chicken. Place onion in Crock-Pot. Place chicken, breast side up, over onion. Separate garlic into cloves; do not peel cloves. Place garlic cloves in and around chicken. Cover; cook on low setting for at least 7 hours or until chicken is tender and juices run clear (or cook on high for 4 hours). Add 1 c. sour cream at end (to juice left in CP) if you like. Eat the chicken with the sauce and squeeze the garlic out of the cloves and eat that on the chicken or spread it on bread and dip in the juices!
