I’ve got a new crowd-pleasing recipe for you, Soy Maple Glazed Chicken & Sweet Potatoes! I made a version of this for my parents, and my dad was like, “You have to send me this recipe.” I’m not sure I can recall the last time he asked me for a recipe (he usually relies on a rotation of their tried and true favorites) … so I thought that was a pretty darn good sign!
Easy Potatoes Chicken in Slow Cooker With Soy Maple Glaze
Starting the chicken off in the slow cooker means it ends up so tender it’s practically falling off the bone. The sweet potatoes can easily be mashed with a fork when it’s all said and done, and the sauce does a great job complimenting everything in the dish and providing a nice glaze on the chicken.
How to Make the Perfect Chicken Glaze
It all starts with a simple roux that comes together with the whole wheat flour, olive oil and butter. After that, we used the cooking liquid from the chicken and whisked it together in the same pot to make a soy maple glaze that will reduce while it’s cooking until it’s thick enough to coat the chicken and vegetables.
Give it a try the way it is and see what you think.
