If you love a good bowl meal, you’ll love these Honey Garlic Chicken Bowls. Even better, the chicken is easily made in the crockpot so these are so simple to make! Plan to prep these ingredients for your next easy weeknight dinner. Plus, lunch leftovers the next day!

Now is the time for all the easy dinners with minimal prep! Honey Garlic Chicken comes together easily in the crockpot and cooks for 3-4 hrs on it own before you need to do anything else. The sauce is made with simple ingredients that you may already have in the fridge or pantry. It packs a ton of flavor that goes so well with the rice, pickled onions and edamame that I use in these bowls. I recently have been loving using chicken thighs in meals too. Chicken thighs seem to be relatively better prices at the store and they add more flavor then a chicken breast would. Try it out if you haven’t!

  • Shredded Honey Garlic Chicken
  • Jasmine Rice
  • Shredded Carrots
  • Pickled onions

How to store your leftovers:

Storing your leftovers in sealed containers in the fridge is best! I like using these! If you’re prepping these bowls to reheat, be sure to add the fresh ingredients once you reheat.

If you want to switch these up, try doing this:

  • Use a different grain or rice! Brown rice or quinoa are great alternatives to switching these up.
  • Load up the veggies! If you want to add more veggies to this dish, try adding sautéed zucchini and squash.

FAQs

How do I meal prep these bowls?

Prepping the crockpot honey garlic chicken will save a lot of time when you go to make these! I would also prep the rice or use frozen rice to quickly reheat (what I love to do!). All of the other ingredients are fresh and can easily be added on when you go to make it.

Do I have to use rice?

No! You can easily use any grain here or switch jasmine rice with brown rice. Quinoa is a great alternative grain to use.

How do you make pickled onions?

Pickled onions add the best flavor to everything, but especially to this burger bowl! Start by chopping up the red onion in half and then into some thin “C” slices. Set aside to make the brine. Take 6oz of water and set to a boil on the stove. Put in 1 tbsp salt with 1 tbsp white sugar into the mason jar with red onion. Pour in the boiled water and then fill the rest of the jar with white vinegar. Place lid on mason jar and give it a spin to let onions soak it up. Store in the fridge for the week!
