Crock Pot Honey Glazed Dump Chicken Recipe


This recipe for honey glazed dump chicken is a great time-saving meal for a busy mom.

You dump all of the ingredients into a freezer bag and freeze. Take the bag out the night before using and thaw in the refrigerator and dump in a baking dish for oven or put in a crock pot.


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1/8 cup soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup honey

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken pieces, breasts, thighs or wings


For Freezing:

  1. Place all the ingredients into a 1-gallon freezer bag. Lay the bag flat in the freezer.

To Thaw:

  1. Take the bag out of the freezer the night before; making sure the freezer bag is completely sealed.

  2. Place the bag on a shelf furthest from the freezer; it works best if the bag is lying flat.

For the Slow Cooker:

  1. Put the chicken in the bottom of the pot.

  2. Pour the remaining ingredients from the bag over the chicken. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours or until done.

For Baking:

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Place all the ingredients into a large baking dish, turn the chicken to coat.

  3. Bake until the chicken juices run clear, about 30 to 60 minutes depending upon the chicken pieces used.

Crock Pot Chocolate Peanut Candy Recipe

This delicious crock pot chocolate peanut candy recipe was given to me by a
friend. It is so easy to make and great for gift giving for the holidays or any occasion.

Make sure you use a crock pot and not a slow cooker. The crockpot does not get as hot as the slow cooker does on the low setting. The candy may not turn out correctly if you use this recipe in a slow cooker.

For the recipe, you will need salted and unsalted roasted peanuts, semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and vanilla bark.


16 ounces unsalted dry roasted peanuts
16 ounces vanilla bark
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
16 ounces lightly salted dry roasted salted peanuts


  1. Add peanuts into a large crockpot, add the chocolate and white chocolate chips and vanilla or almond bark.

  2. Put the lid on the crockpot, turn the setting to low.

  3. Cover and cook for 2-3 hours, do not stir.

  4. After the chocolate is completely melted; stir to combine and coat peanuts.

  5. Using a tablespoon, drop a heaping spoonful of candy on the wax paper, or into cupcake lined mini muffin tins or use regular muffin tins, but use two tablespoons of the chocolate mixture.

  6. Let the candy cool before removing the paper liners.

Tip From Margielynn!

  • You may use almond bark in place of the vanilla bark.

It is delicious and easy, the pasta is a replacement for the crust!
