Get out your crock pot! These Slow Cooker Honey-Soy Chicken Drumsticks and Thighs are soaked in a honey-soy sauce spiked with orange, ginger, and garlic. So delicious!
In a medium bowl, combine honey, orange zest, orange juice, soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, vinegar, crushed red pepper, and sesame seeds.
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Season chicken on both sides with a little salt and pepper; sauté for about 3 minutes per side, until they have a golden crust. Transfer to the slow cooker along with the sauce mixture.
Cook on low for 8 hours, basting the tops halfway through if possible, so the skin doesn't dry out.
Transfer the chicken pieces to a bowl.
Very carefully pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a medium skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until reduced and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour the sauce over the drumsticks and stir to coat. Serve, sprinkled with parsley.
Serve over cooked white white and enjoy!
You can skip the sauce reduction, it will just be looser.
