Fall-apart tender, Slow Cooker Asian Glazed Chicken is a super easy recipe that your whole family will love. It also only takes about 5 minutes to pull together and will fill your house with the most amazing garlicky flavor while cooking!

 Slow Cooker Asian Glazed Chicken

I probably use my slow cooker more in the summer than in the winter. I hate heating the house up with the stove and oven. As well, my backyard faces west and it’s blazing hot trying to grill out there.

Plus, I can literally pile all the ingredients for this recipe into the slow cooker, cover it, turn it on, and walk away for 4 hours! It doesn’t even take 5 minutes unless you trim the chicken.


The glaze is out-of-this-world good! I like to add cornstarch to make the sauce thicker and serve this over noodles with a side salad. It’s also good with rice.

By the way, you can also use chicken thighs. I prefer boneless skinless breasts or thighs, but if you don’t mind the skin (or bones) by all means use bone-in, skin-on breasts or thighs.

If there’s one ingredient that you simply must use fresh it’s ginger. Dried ginger tastes nothing like fresh ginger. Ginger is a root and it adds so much flavor to recipes. A little ginger goes a long way! It’s in the produce section of your grocery store. It’s inexpensive and you’ll just need a very small knob. As well, it’ll last 3 to 4 weeks on the countertop.
