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

    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

    I knew I was going to like this before it started cooking, it smelled amazing just putting it together. I made Jasmine rice and sugar snap peas with this. I will definitely make this again as it was delicious and saved time by being in the crock pot. - 1/12/15

    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

    I've made this, but knowing that it wouldn't be browned in the slow cooker, I browned it before in a little olive oil before putting it in the crockpot. Not a thyme fan, I switched to a little garlic. Its a family favorite. - 1/10/15

    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

    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

    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 made this with chicken thighs, as I like those a little bit better than breasts, and I doubled the sauce mixture because I had about 1.5 lbs. of chicken. It came out very tasty! I served it with rice to soak up the sauce. I will definitely be making this again. - 1/15/18

    I found it very watery and did not need that extra 1/2 cup water. This could be because my chicken breast was still frozen. - 12/27/14

    Amazing!! I omitted the coarse grain mustard as I didn't have any and swapped balsamic vinegar as I had that on had. I cut the water in half and did end up having to thicken a little but it was the perfect amount of sauce. So flavorful and the chicken fell apart. Will be making again!! - 9/27/20

    Delicious! I was crunched for time so I ended up cooking it on high for 4 hours, but I think it still turned out tasty. I portioned it out for the week--1/2 cup of chicken mixture with 1/2 cup of quinoa. Throw in a cup of veggies and I've got lunch ready to go for the whole week! - 6/12/18
