Slow Cooker Sriracha Honey Shredded Chicken

This Sriracha Honey Shredded Chicken recipe is packed full of flavour. It’s sweet from the honey, with a spicy kick from the sriracha sauce. It will also make your home smell amazing while you wait!

These ingredients should be readily available at all supermarkets. If you can’t find Sriracha immediately, try the world foods aisle. We recommend using the Flying Goose brand (pictured below).

This dish is super simple, with minimal upfront preparation needed. Just follow the steps in the recipe below and chuck all the slow cooker ingredients in together. After cooking, shred the chicken, top with spring onion and sesame seeds and away you go! We served this on a bed of jasmine rice, with a wedge of lime.

For those who want extra spice, you could chop up a fresh chili and add this to the slow cooker. Or, just top your finished meal with extra sriracha sauce.

Pro tip: save any leftovers for the next day. Heat up and stuff in a baguette with mayo, lettuce and extra sriracha – trust us on this one!
