Slow Cooker Recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken

Making the honey mustard flavour at home is so simple. No need to worry about packet mixes or jars of the honey mustard. This recipe uses basic pantry items to give you the same if not even better flavour that the whole family will love.  Mr 4 devoured this Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken so it passes the kid test.

By making this into a slow cooker version it is a perfect meal to set at the start of the deal and enjoy when you get home.  I will also put steps at the bottom for how to cook in a crock pot on and in the stove.


6 Chicken Thighs or 3-4 Chicken Breasts
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Seeded Mustard
1 Tsp Minced Garlic
3 Tbs Hot Water
1 Tsp Vegeta Chicken Stock powder
2 Spring Onion stalks, sliced finely
2 Carrots, sliced
1 Cup Corn kernels, fresh, can or frozen
1/3 Cup Thickened Cream
Serve with mashed potato, rice or pasta


1. If your slow cooker sautes as well place the spring onions, garlic and chicken into it and brown the chicken on all sides. If your slow cooker doesn’t sauté do this in a fry pan then add to the slow cooker.
2. In a bowl mix together the honey, mustard, hot water and chicken stock powder. Pour over the browned chicken. Add the sliced carrots and mix everything together. Set to cook on slow for 8 hours.

Perfect for leftovers the next day. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Crock pot Version: Simply replace where it states slow cooker with crock pot. Brown in the crockpot on the stove then cook in a low heat oven (160 degree celcius) for 3 hours. Alternatively simmer on the stove top for 3-4 hours turning the chicken every hour or so.

    Hi! I love your recipe ideas. One question – could you freeze this? or would you freeze it before adding the cream? thnx

      Hi Laura, this would be fine to freeze after cooking with the cream included.

    hi Ananda
    My question to you is while everything is in the slow cooker should there be enough liquid to cover everything

    • Amanda May 4, 2015 at 9:14 pm #

      Hi Robyn, no there won’t be enough liquid to cover everything. JHowever, during the cooking process the liquid content will increase.

    Hi Amanda
    I was just wondering if you could do this on the high setting for 4 hours in slow cooker.
    Love your recipes!

      Hi Alissa, yes you can. Mine only has the low mode so that is why all of mine are cooked on low, but can be cooked on high for half the time.

        Thanks heaps!

    Came home after 7.5 hours on low and it was turning black around the edges. 🙁
    Hopefully we’ll be able to eat around the burnt bits.

      Hi I guess the time might vary a little depending on your slow cooker. Mine was no where near burnt after the 8 hours but other slow cookers may cook at a slightly higher temp.
