To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the sauce & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required!

You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.

Assemble your ingredients: Olive oil, chicken broth, soy sauce, honey, Sriracha sauce, boneless, skinless chicken thighs and red pepper flakes.

Here is what you need:

¼ cup olive oil
2 cups chicken broth
½ cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
½ cup honey
¼ cup Sriracha sauce (more or less to taste!)
3-4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
red pepper flakes (optional; for cooking day only)
cooked rice (optional; for cooking day only)
 

In large bowl whisk together olive oil, chicken broth, soy sauce, minced garlic, honey and Sriracha.

Step 1: In large bowl, whisk together olive oil, chicken broth, soy sauce, minced garlic, honey, and Sriracha.

Divide chicken and mixture into freezer bags.

Step 2: Divide chicken into 2 gallon size freezer bags (be sure to label bags first!). Then divide mixture into bags over chicken; freeze until needed.

Place marinated chicken into slow cooker.

Step 3: On cooking day, place frozen contents of bag directly into crockpot. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 7-8 hours. Serve over rice and sprinkle with red pepper flakes if desired.

Serve chicken over rice.
