Soy Maple Potatoes and Chicken in Slow Cooker

2 Reviews / 5 Average
This slow cooker Soy Maple Glazed Chicken and Sweet Potatoes dish is packed with flavor. Don't be scared by the two tablespoons of sriracha it calls for ... it becomes pretty mild after cooking for so many hours, and you'll hardly even notice it's there!

Soy Maple Glazed potatoes and chicken in slow cooker recipe on a tray

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.

    I have been totally looking for things to start off the new year. This looks incredible. I did not know the Broiling trick for years, so I would slow cook things and so many things just come out like stew of different varieties. I started broiling things just before serving them and like magic everything is so much better. I do not cook things as long so they do not break apart while transferring them like the article says.
    This looks like it will make a great addition to my Slow Cooker repertoire.

    This recipe looks amazing! I need to dust off my slow cooker and cook some winter warming comfort food and this looks ideal to make! Only two of us so we could either be piggys or there will be some leftover for lunch the next day, perfect!

    1. We haven’t tried Brussels sprouts in the slow cooker before. They might come out too soft based on the time needed for the chicken and potatoes. You can definitely give it a try and let us know if you have success. – Nicole

    1. We have not tried it with the Instant Pot since Lisa isn’t a big fan of them. If you try it out, feel free to let us know so other readers can try, too. – Nicole

  3. Doesn’t sriracha have questionable ingredients that do not line up with real food rules? Have you found a brand that’s not full of junk?

    1. There are clean sriracha sauces out there. It’s made of a mixture of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. Thrive Market has one that stays in the real food rules. – Nicole

  4. I definitely want to try this recipe! Looks yummy but 1 lb of chicken per person seems like a very large portion. Is this because it is bone in?

    1. Hi, depending on each person’s appetite, you’ll get about 3/4 lbs per serving of chicken at the most, but yes, since these are bone-in you’re getting less chicken per pound than if you went for boneless. – Nicole

    1. That should work, too. While we haven’t tried it yet, I would say 4-5 hours on low for boneless. – Nicole
