My husband surprised me at work today with a beautiful box of chocolates from the chocolatier.  I am pretty sure he was smitten by this chicken dinner!!!  Try it at home and see if it wins you some chocolates!!!! It is THAT good!!!  CROCKPOT HONEY GARLIC PULLED CHICKEN!!!


Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken


2-3 large bone-in, skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 pounds total)
1 package chicken thighs (2 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Tamari (or soy sauce)
1/4 cup blackberry jam
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced onion
1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 3T. water
Sliced scallions, for garnish


Place all the chicken in the crockpot.  In a bowl, whisk honey, tamari, blackberry jam, bbq sauce, olive oil, garlic & onion.  Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover the crock pot and cook the chicken on LOW for 4 hours and on HIGH for the last hour for a total of  5 hours. Carefully remove all of the chicken to a plate.  Remove skin/bones and using 2 forks, shred the chicken.  Put the chicken in a bowl. Remove liquid from crockpot and put into a pot over medium heat.  Whisk in the cornstarch/water and boil a few minutes to reduce.  Strain this through a sieve.  Pour the sauce over the chicken, stirring to evenly mix.  Pour as much or as little as you'd like!!!  Top with scallions!! Serve over rice! Add some chopsticks for fun!
