The recipe is very similar to my Honey Soy Pork Tenderloin recipe that you can prepare in the slow cooker. That is one of our favorites as well and we’ll alternate which one we have.

For my honey soy chicken, I prefer to use chicken that still has the bone in and skin, especially if I’m cooking it in the oven. Having the skin still on the chicken leaves a crispy, delicious crunch to the chicken that is missing with when the skin has been removed. However, if you would like to use your slow cooker or if you are watching your fat intake, you may prefer to use skinless instead. That is totally up to you.

    Made this for Super Bowl. Did not turn out like your picture. Needed less soy sauce to be thicker marinade on chicken, or something :(
