This slow cooker soy maple glazed chicken and sweet potato dish is packed with flavor. Don’t be afraid of two tablespoons of sriracha. After hours of cooking it will be so mild that you’ll barely notice it’s there.
We have a new recipe for the masses: Soy Maple Glazed Chicken & Sweet Potatoes. I made a version of this for my parents, and he said, “Send me this recipe.” I can’t remember the last time he asked me for a recipe (he usually relies on a trial-and-error rotation of true favorites) … so I thought that was a pretty good sign!
Easy slow cooker potato chicken with soy maple glaze
Cooking chicken in a slow cooker means the chicken is so tender that it falls off the bone. The sweet potato is easy to mash with a fork, and the sauce complements everything in the dish, providing a nice glaze to the chicken.
How to make the perfect chicken glaze
It all starts with a simple roux of whole grains, olive oil and butter. The chicken cooking liquid is then whisked in the same pan to create a soy maple glaze that is simmered until thick enough to coat the chicken and vegetables.
Try it as is and see what you think.
