Honey Sauced Chicken

"I found this recipe on Pinterest.  The original came from Mmm...Cafe and she got it from Crock Pot Recipe Card Collection.  The recipe listed a few ways to cook this, and I opted for sauteing diced chicken in the sauce ingredients in a frying pan.  This tasted very similar to General Tso's chicken.  I did not add the pepper flakes since the kids were eating it and I put in onion powder instead of onions....very yummy!"


3/4 pound chicken (of your choice)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion (or 1/16 cup onion flakes)
1/8 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3 hours or on high 1 1/2 hours. Chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.

To bake chicken as a 30 minute meal:
Dice chicken and season both sides with salt and pepper, place in 8x8 pan. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.
