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 :(

    I made these tonight. I already sucked down two thighs and am about to serve them to my husband. Usually I care what he thinks, but not tonight. If he doesn’t LOVE these he is nuts! WOW, awesome!

    So excited about this recipe! Going to try it tonight. One question, though – what makes up Montreal Seasoning? I’m sure it’s something that can be bought in the store, but am hoping my spice cabinet might already have the ingredients.
