Chicken thighs are something I didn’t really cook a lot with until my husband requested them. They taste amazing grilled and I’ve really grown to love cooking them. This slow cooker recipe came out really good. I only wish I would have lightly grilled the chicken to give it an added layer of flavor, but I have to say that it came out pretty good.

In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and sear until golden, 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a slow cooker.
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, ketchup, honey, garlic, ginger, Sriracha, and lime juice. Pour sauce over chicken and toss until coated.
Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, or on high for 2 hours, until no longer pink.
