Delicious Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken

This delicious slow cooker honey mustard chicken is an amazing dinner dish that can be quickly prepared. It takes 4-6 hours to cook, and the result is absolutely fantastic.

Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken

You can either serve the chicken as is or you can shred it and mix shredded chicken with the sauce. Both are great options but if you’re looking to use this for sandwich meat then shredding is probably the better option.

I recommend cooking up some rice to go with this dish. Personally, I had it with some white rice and green vegetables, and it was certainly a delicious combination. There are other different sides that you can try with it such as chips, vegetables and so much more. If you have any suggestions, then be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this page.

Make sure you keep the leftovers as they will reheat nicely. Just store in an airtight container in the fridge and then heat in a frypan or microwave whenever you need food.

Recipe Tips

  • As I mentioned above, you can shred the chicken instead. This variation is perfect if you want to use it as sandwich meat, with nachos, in tacos and much more.
  • If you love the taste of garlic, then don’t be afraid to double the amount that’s in this delicious slow cooker honey mustard chicken recipe.
  • You can use chicken thigh instead of breast. It doesn’t hugely matter what you end up deciding to use. You could even use chicken wings or drumsticks if that’s what you wanted.
  • If you don’t have whole grain mustard, then this can be replaced with just Dijon or something similar.
  • You don’t have to thicken the sauce, but you may find that it is a little too runny without a thickener.
  • If you don’t have the time to cook this in the slow cooker, then you can always just bake the honey mustard chicken instead. You can work this out by using a conversion chart for slow cooker times.

    Hi, thanks for all your help. I consider myself a pretty good cook. But every time I slow cook chicken breasts they always turn out so dry. I have tried slow cooking on low and tried on high, no matter they are always dry, would love any suggestions you might have.

      We made this one the other day and it was over the top good. I doubled the garlic as suggested and the dijon mustard since I didn’t have any whole grain mustard on hand. I used 4 large bone-in chicken thighs and cooked for 5 hours on low. It was falling off the bone and still delicious but could have done with only 4 hours. Breasts may require different amount of time. Enjoy.
