5-Ingredient Crockpot Honey Sriracha Chicken

This super simple recipe is super delicious! With just five ingredients this sweet and spicy combo pleases everyone’s palate, from toddlers to Grandparents.

5-Ingredient Crockpot Honey Sriracha ChickenI’m not going to lie, I waited with bated breath as my 3 and 6 year olds tried this dish for the first time. They are NOT big fans of spicy food. They usually look on in mock horror anytime my Husband or Dad drench their food in Sriracha and here I was actually trying to serve it to them! To my amazement and utter surprise, they loved it!

My secret…honey! The 50/50 ration of Sriracha and honey was perfect for my family. The “spice-haters” loved it and the “spice-lovers” weren’t even tempered to add more Sriracha. THAT’S a win in my book!

Is there a substitute for Honey that would be good to use? My husband is allergic to honey. TIA

I’m not sure. Maybe maple syrup?

Any sweetener will work! Try agave syrup for the closest thing to honey, or you can even do maple syrup, or apricot jam!

What size crock pot are these cook times for?

4-7 quarts, but the exact cooking time will depend on your specific slow cooker.

Can you cook this on low longer than 6 hours? I need something closer to 10.
