Honey-Soy Chicken with Green Onions


Onions take a crazy long time to mature in the garden; this variety took about 175 days, or almost six months. They’ve been clogging up my garden space for half a year, when a bag at the store costs about $3! Bah! Live and learn.

On the other time extreme, this recipe is a cinch. Five minutes prep, and 6 hours (not months!) unattended in the crock pot equals a quick and tasty dinner.


6 chicken thighs
1/3 c soy sauce
1/3 c honey
2 T hoisin sauce
1/2 t crushed red pepper
2 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
3 T sriracha
1 onion, chopped
1 c broth
1-2 T corn starch

green onions
sesame seeds


In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, hoisin, red pepper, lemon juice, broth and sriracha. In a slow cooker, put the olive oil in the bottom, then chopped onions, then pour over the sauce. Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat. Before serving, take 1/2 cup of the broth and mix with the corn starch. Add back to the slow cooker to thicken. If it doesn’t look thick enough, repeat.

Serve over rice, and add your favorite garnishes.
