Slow cooker honey "baked" chicken

I used local honey, of course, from the Farmers' Market. I've been using the slow cookers recently to keep the house cool on hot days and to get supper rolling while I'm playing in the dirt - er, working in the garden. I served this with rice; Chuck shredded his on a bun. It's delicious either way.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons prepared mustard (optional)
2 teaspoons curry powder (I substituted paprika.)
salt and pepper, optional

1. Place chicken in slow cooker.
2. Mix butter, honey, mustard, and curry powder (or paprika) together in a snall bowl. Pour sauce over chicken.
3. Cover and cook on High for 3 hours or on Low for 5-6 hours.

I used my 4 quart slow cooker. It was a good size. Adjust the amount of chicken and the size of the crockpot to the size of your crowd. This might make a good party dish.

The original recipe was in Fix it and Forget it Big Cookbook, a gem with 1400 slow cooker recipes. This is not a sponsored post; Chuck and Amigo gave the book to me last Christmas.

Ooooh, I love to use my crokpot. They are such time savers. Especially for those of us with busy lives and large families! Saves spoons too, eh Daisy?

Interesting. I don't use my slowcooker often (okay, I rarely use it because I feel like the contents always taste the same), but I think of the crock pot as a fall/winter thing.
