One-Pot Honey Garlic Chicken in the Crock-Pot

chickenIs there any ingredient as versatile as honey? Yesterday it sweetened our goat cheese crostini; today it's a key element in this easy, one-pot dinner: Honey Garlic Chicken in the slow cooker.

With pineapple, soy sauce, and of course, honey, this dish reminds me of sweet and sour chicken that you order from your favorite takeout Chinese place -- except this version is healthier. We like it over brown rice.
