This Crockpot Honey Soy Chicken with Broccoli has all the flavors of Chinese take out, but is much healthier since boneless, skinless chicken breasts are used and nothing is fried.
It’s a little sweet and a little salty and the whole family is sure to enjoy it. Add some broccoli the last few minutes to boost the nutritional value, add some crunch and color, and really make this a one pot meal. To simplify this meal even more, use boil in a bag rice.
