I am absolutely in love, possibly slightly obsessed, with this easy 5 ingredient Honey Sriracha Shredded Chicken. The crock pot does all the work, and you get to enjoy this spicy-sweet perfectly cooked shredded chicken breast. Let’s begin…
- 4 chicken breasts (4oz each)
- 1/3 cup tamari (or coconut aminos or soy sauce)
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup sriracha
- 3 minced garlic cloves
Place cleaned whole chicken breasts in your crock pot (slow cooker). Then spread minced garlic over top– don’t worry, as it cooks the flavor will mix with all the juices and spread around. Set crock-pot to high heat and cook for 2.5-3 hours, or until the chicken is fully cooked and easily shredded. Drain liquid from cooked chicken (save if you can make use of garlicy chicken stock). Then, shred chicken with 2 forks. Make sauce by mixing together soy sauce/coconut aminos/tamari, honey, and sriracha. Pour on top of shredded chicken and mix evenly. If you like super spicy, add more sriracha sauce. If you like “saucy” just make a larger batch, it’s easy since it’s equal parts 1:1:1.
Serve with brown rice & steamed broccoli, with mashed sweet potato & asparagus, or serve chilled on a bed of fresh spinach salad.
