Korean Roast Chicken Thighs - Crockpot Style!

I am linking this recipe up with Cooking Thursday at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom and Ultimate Recipe Swap at Life as Mom, check them both out for some great recipes!!

I've seen the link for this recipe on many menu plans since I started blogging so it's been on my to-try list for awhile now. It's something that I know my boys would love so I was hoping to adapt it to a crockpot meal so they can have yet another yummy recipe on the nights I'm away at school. (Sometimes they even save me some!)

My plan of attack for changing this recipe to crockpot was basically... nothing!! I just gathered the ingredients:

1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
3 TBS honey
2 TBS sesame oil (recipe calls for 3 but that seemed like too much for me - a little goes a LONG way with sesame oil)
1/2 cup freeze dried chives
3 TBS minced garlic (I used a ton more than what the recipe calls for)
2 TBS ground ginger (again a ton more than the recipe!)
Some black pepper to sprinkle
And Chicken Thighs - the recipe says to leave skin on - I did not - peeled them right off and I didn't regret it!

For the next step I mixed all ingredients but chicken in the crockpot:
Looking promising so far... so I added the chicken and turned them to coat a bit:
Then I covered and cooked on low for 6 hours. The smells were amazingly wonderful!!!

After 6 hours this is what my chicken looked like:
Smells good... check! Looks good... check!! Now will it taste good??

You know it will!

But first, it needs rice. And look - Hubby got me a brand new rice cooker for Christmas:
Quite an upgrade from his bachelor days one we'd been using - and it has all these fun little functions - like porridge - who knew you could make that in a rice cooker!! I didn't, but I made it and it does in fact work!

Anyway I put the rice on before I left for class- because get this - it has a delay timer too! (Perfect!).

And here is the finished product:
It was very very good!!

So if you've been wanting to try this or if you are looking for a new crockpot recipe, give this a try, it's definitely unique and really yummy! Or make it like the recipe says if you want and throw it in the oven - but now at least we know it works both ways!


Here is a printable version of my recipe. Let me know if you try this!

Love and Luck to you,

  7. I just put this into the crock - however, mine does not look like as much sauce as yours. Did you add any other liquid other than the soy and oil? Mine is barely covering the bottom of the crock.

    Sounds promising though.

    Is your rice just plain or did you add something? Plan on having rice but we don't like plain white rice.

    Thanks!

  8. Kim, I specifically remember that I didn't add any extra sauce because I ran out of soy sauce with this dinner, so I actually came up about a tsp short on it! Plus I had to turn the chicken and really get the sauce on it when I first added it raw - but I didn't touch it again throughout the day and it worked fine!

    Is your crock wider than mine maybe and that's why the sauce looks so thin?

    Just plain white rice, I did sprinkle it with dried chives for the picture because it wasn't showing up well! Spooning the sauce on top of the white rice might make it more enjoyable to you - the sauce will have a TON of flavor!

    Enjoy!!
