  • 2 lbs. chicken I use either all thighs or a combination with chicken breasts and thighs
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4 cloves of garlic peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup onion sliced thin
  • 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TBSP tamari or soy sauce
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 TBSP arrowroot powder mixed with 3 TBSP water
  1. Add chicken to slow cooker. Toss onion and garlic on top, and drizzle chicken, onion and garlic with honey.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the apple cider vinegar, tamari (or soy), spices and salt. Pour over chicken.
  3. Cook on high for 4 hours. After 3.5 hours, add the mixed arrowroot powder and water to the slow cooker and stir to combine; finish cooking for the remaining 30 minutes. The arrowroot mixture will help thicken the sauce. Chicken should shred easily with a fork after cooking.
