Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Chicken


WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Chicken
(237 calories | *7 WW SmartPoints)

This simple protein-packed chicken dish combines honey, Sriracha chili sauce, chopped onion and a few spices—and then let your slow cooker do all the hard work.

Not quite sweet and not quite spicy, there’s a nicely balance sweet-spicy flavor that works well as low carb lettuce wraps, over low carb cauliflower rice—or as we enjoyed it—over warm quinoa.
