Honey Garlic Chicken

Hey!  I'm sorry it's been a few days.  We've had some personal issues going on.  My husband's great grandmother is ill and she's ready to go.  So we were visiting her yesterday.  But I figured you guys deserved a new recipe.

Going with the Hubbs LOVE for Chinese food, I decided to try another recipe that is right up his alley.  I made crock pot honey garlic chicken.  I used four bone-in chicken thighs for this recipe.

You'll need:
3 cloves of garlic- minced
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of ketchup (don't let this scare you)
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper

Whisk all of that up together.

Place the chicken thighs in a crock pot.

Pour the sauce over it.  And let it cook for 8 hours on low.  It'll be so tender when you're done, that the bones will just pull out.

Serve it over rice. (Sorry for the picture quality). I wasn't feeling well and forgot to take a picture before he started eating.

Okay, so I know this was a short but I want to take a moment to bring some awareness to Huntington's Disease.  If you've ever watched House, M.D., you know about this disorder because Thirteen is diagnosed and you see it a lot.  Huntington's disease is a real genetic disorder that affects 5-7 per 100,000 people in the U.S. There is no cure for this disease.  It is a rare, degenerative disorder that it caused by a defect on chromosome 4.  It causes a repetition of the CAG pattern in DNA.  In normal people, it occurs 10-28 times.  In a person with Huntington's disease, it repeats 36-120 times.  Symptoms can usually begin showing up around 40, but like you'll see below in the video, it can happen much earlier.  If you have a parent with the disease, you have a 50/50 chance of developing the disease.  Please visit www.hdsa.org for more information.
