What's For Dinner: Dairy Free Soy Free Crockpot Honey BBQ Chicken

UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.

I know what you're thinking "another crockpot recipe," but it's fall. I can't help but use my crockpot all the time. The meals are easy, warm, and comforting. This was my first time trying this recipe. Saturday afternoon I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner without going to the grocery store.

Dairy Free Soy Free Crockpot Honey BBQ Chicken


Boneless thawed, Skinless Chicken Breast, (2lbs or 8 chicken tender pieces: 4oz. each)

3-6 Garlic Cloves, smashed and chopped (I love garlic and use a lot, but I'm still breastfeeding, and the garlic hurt Bel's stomach so I will have to cut back. Be careful with the garlic if you're still nursing.)

1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning

1/3 cup Honey

1/2 to 1 cup (to your taste, I use 1 cup) Worcestershire (check for soy, I use Bi-Lo Brand)

1/2 to 1 cup (to your taste, I use 1 cup) Ketchup (check for soy, I use Hunts 100% Natural)

*The best way to peel garlic is put it in a bowl with a lid and shake hard for one minute. They come out almost completely peeled.


Put the Italian seasoning and honey into crockpot. Then add the chicken, chopped garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup.

Let cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low heat. (flip the chicken over about halfway through)

Serve whole or shredded, with rice or quinoa, or your choice or veggies.

I sauteed some zucchini & yellow squash with a little olive oil & salt free season all. I also cooked up some quinoa (follow box directions) to go with the chicken. If you have never tried quinoa I strongly suggest it. Not only is it delicious, but it has a lot of protein. You can find it in the rice isle. If you try one of the flavored quinoas check for dairy and soy. Quinoa is a great substitute for Rice.
