Honey Butter Crockpot Chicken

Honey Butter Crockpot Chicken

Not kidding…as I was snapping this photo, JR threw up all over Nate. And thus began a very long night tag teaming two pukers.

This crockpot chicken recipe is SO EASY. I didn’t measure anything (sorry about that)…but if you come back and shred the chicken and give it a taste, you can decide if you need more butter, honey, mustard, or seasoning. You can’t really mess it up.



  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt (1 tsp if you love salt like me)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 stick of butter in little slices
  • 1/4-1/3 c honey
  • 2-3 tbs Dijon.

I just made those measurements up, for those who must have a measurement. Ha! Came back later and shredded the chicken and DONE!

1. I heavily seasoned the chicken breasts in:

  • paprika
  • curry powder
  • salt & pepper

2. Then, threw it in the crockpot (you could totally add a diced onion on the bottom if you had one. I had one, I just felt super lazy yesterday).

3. Top with:

  • butter in little slices
  • honey
  • dijon

Serve with rice to soak up all the amazing honey buttery juice. This would be perfect with roasted green beans or roasted broccoli!
