This slow cooker recipe requires no pre-cooking, and it yields a sweet, caramelized glaze and tender chicken.


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into 1-inch strips

    Sauce:
    1 large onion, sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
    3 garlic cloves, sliced
    2 tablespoons honey
    1/4 cup Dijon mustard
    1 tablespoon country-style (coarse-grain) mustard
    2 teaspoons tomato paste
    1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon thyme
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    Pinch cayenne pepper




    2 green onions, sliced on an angle, for garnish (optional)




Tips

The Dijon and country-style mustards thicken the sauce. If you use yellow mustard, you might have to thicken the sauce in the last 30 minutes of cooking with one tablespoon of water mixed with 2 teaspoons of cornstarch.


Directions

Coat the slow cooker with cooking spray.
Place the chicken in the slow cooker, add the sauce ingredients along with 1/2 cup water and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Garnish with green onions before serving, if desired.

Serving Size:Makes 4 servings (1/2 cup)

    This was delicious with mashed potatoes! The sauce for me was WAY too thin, even though I used the mustards listed in the ingredients. Next time, I'm omitting the extra 1/2c. water - but there will be a next time because this is definitely worth making again! - 8/16/13

    This was very good! I don't like the taste of red wine vinegar, so I substituted balsamic vinegar instead. - 8/8/13

    I'm not a huge fan of mustard, but oh this was so good! Had it tonight over mashed potatoes, along with a salad and steamed broccoli. The sauce didn't thicken much, but that just flavored the potatoes more. Next time I'll try it over brown rice. - 8/11/13

    Okay, but too strong a mustard flavor. Chicken cooks tender and works well over rice! Would probably not make it again but it was tasty and worth trying. - 8/6/13

    I don't know what I did wrong, but this was not for us. It came out thin and grey and tasted like dry chicken with vinegar sauce. I followed the recipe exactly and only cooked it for 6 hours. Would not make again and threw leftovers out. - 5/15/14

    I did not have thyme so I used poultry seasoning. Also I used apple cider vinegar instead of red wine. - 9/5/13

  • Aweful.Way too much thyme! It overpowered the entire dish. IF I ever made it again, I'd use no more than 1/4 of what it called for, or 1/4 teaspoon, Both my husband and I really disliked it and now I'm stuck with 2 more servings for leftovers, which I have to choke down. - 7/15/14

  • I didn't have brown mustard so only used the Dijon, and it was really good. When I heated up the leftovers a few days later, I sauteed some mushrooms and added a splash of sherry to the sauce, and it was a big improvement on an already tasty dish. - 1/18/14

  • The sauce didn't thicken but it was flavorful. Next time I will be more organized and cook on low temp so the chicken doesn't dry out. - 1/12/14

  • Pretty good! Doubled it, used fresh thyme, added carrot, served over rice. Didn't have "country style" mustard so added an extra Tbsp dijon and some whole mustard seed. Needs a little more depth of flavor, it's pretty sweet. Will work on modifying and make again! - 1/9/14

  • This was way TO HOT for me. It was to spicy. We had it over brown rice with a salad. This is not a recipe for me it is just to spicy.
