A lightly sweetened honey chipotle sticky chicken recipe that is meant for those that have little time to spend in the kitchen. In less than 10 minutes of prep work, the crock pot will take care of the rest!
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 T. Honey
1 tsp of ground ginger
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 – 1 teaspoon McCormicks Chipotle Pepper Seasoning (I use 1 tsp, it depends on your taste)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup tomato paste
3 lbs chicken leg quarters (thighs, legs, etc.)
Place washed chicken leg quarters in a Crockpot, set aside. In a small saucepan combine the remaining ingredients over med heat. Bring to a broil, stirring occasionally, reduce heat immediately and simmer 2 minutes. Pour 3/4 of the sauce over the chicken pieces in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
Just prior to serving, Preheat the oven to BROIL. Place the chicken on a Cookie Sheet, Brush liberally with the reserved glaze/sauce. Place in the oven and broil for 5 minutes. This will create a nice thick, crispy chicken that will melt in your mouth!
If it’s too hot to run the broiler for 5 minutes, you can skip it, but it really does give the chicken a wonderful texture and flavor.
Serve with Coleslaw, potato or macaroni salad.
