Very tasty sauce. Will cook shorter time next time. Chicken was a bit dry.

No just dry powder Wendy 🙂 NOTHING dumb about asking that’s what we are here for 🙂

Oh my!! This was delicious!! I used chicken drumstick fillets (nice and cheap). I resisted the temptation to stir it often so the chicken didn’t fall apart. I thickened the sauce with cornflour. Next time I’ll have to increase the sauce as I kept having to taste it 😊. Every bit as good as the best takeaway.

Such an easy and tasty recipe made exactly as the recipe states. Lovely with mash and in season veg. As l had picked up drumsticks at $2 a kg it was also a true budget meal this time too.

We tried this recipe this week.
Super easy and tasty just as the recipe reads and thickened with cornflour as suggested.
Since l had picked up drumsticks on special it was also a good budget meal.
I served it with mash potatoes and veg in season.

Made this and for 3 ingredients it was great! Might just have to go to the store and make it for supper for Friday night when the hubs gets home!

This is so good! I used 1kg drumsticks coz they were on special. Such a cheap delicious meal.

You can – they are just a little more dry than thigh

Can I use chicken breasts?

I enjoyed this a lot more then I thought I would as I don’t eat honey haha but it was delicious. I paired it with fried rice and it was the perfect combo and 4 hours was enough cooking time for me.

This was amazing winner in our family
I miss read and use 3/4 cup honey but was divine I put the honey and French onion in slow cooker stirred together then put in the thigh fillets mixing through to coat the chicken and cooked as per instructions

I don’t line the slow cooker in any way and have no problems 🙂

Can I throw this straight in the slow cooker or does the honey burn & hard wash up? Do I use grease paper on the bottom?

This was so yummy and I received compliments, which is unusual. Hehe. Definitely 5 star. Only thing I would do is not cook it for the 4 1/2 hours next time. I think my slow cooker may cook hotter, so think I would cook for 3/12 – 4:00 hours in mine.😀

Mind blown!!
How can 3 ingredients create so muck flavour??
(I used 2 packs of the French onion soup mix) .
All 4 kids and the man child loved it…. this will be made on a regular basis
Winner Winner, sticky chicken dinner 🙂

Can you substitute the French onion soup with something else?
