Before Christmas, I adapted a slow cooker recipe from whatscookingintheburbs.blogspot.com. I made a bunch of freezer meals at once, and included it as well. I simply put all the ingredients in a gallon freezer bag, stashed it in the deep freeze, and thawed it out later before cooking it in the Crock Pot. I love that it only had 3 ingredients (which we already had – bonus!) besides the chicken. Here’s what I came up with:

honey mustard chicken - slow cooker

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 4 uncooked chicken breasts
  • 3 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/3 c. spicy brown mustard
  • 1 Tbs. honey

WHAT YOU DO:

If freezing: Whisk the honey, mustard, and garlic in a small bowl. Add the chicken breasts to the freezer bag and pour the liquid from the bowl on top. Label with a sharpie and freeze. Before serving, thaw, then pour everything in slow cooker. Cook on LOW 3-4 hours (or until thoroughly cooked).

If preparing right away: Whisk the honey, mustard, and garlic in a small bowl. Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker, then pour the liquid from the bowl on top. Cook on LOW 3-4 hours (or until thoroughly cooked).
