  • 2 in large bone- skin-on chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup blackberry jam
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Sliced scallions for garnish
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  • Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, blackberry jam, hoisin sauce, garlic, onion, olive oil and red pepper flakes. Pour sauce over chicken breasts.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 4-5 hours until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker, keeping liquids in the slow cooker, and place chicken in a bowl. Remove the bones and shred chicken. Leave shredded chicken in the bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch with 3 Tbsp of cold water. This is called a slurry, and it will thicken the sauce.
  • Transfer the liquids from the slow cooker to a small saucepan over medium high heat and whisk in the slurry. Bring sauce to a boil and cook until it reduces and thickens slightly. This took me about 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour half the sauce over shredded chicken and toss to combine. Top chicken with scallions and sesame seeds.
  • Pour the second half of the sauce into a small bowl or gravy boat to pour over chicken later if desired.
