Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwiches
Greg came up with the idea for this recipe and it was amazing. The sauce, the chicken, the pickles, the doritos, all of it. The leftover chicken was served over salad greens with sliced grapes and tomatoes. And that was almost equally delicious as the first night.
For this recipe the best choice for chicken is a combination of thighs and breasts. You get the white meat but also the flavor and tenderness from the dark meat. You can serve the chicken hot or cold, more like chicken salad sandwiches. I liked it warm.
I made homemade buns. I love this recipe from Taste of Home. It only takes 40 minutes for homemade yeast buns from start to finish! You really don’t have to let the dough raise so that’s why it’s fairly quick.
Add this easy 5 ingredient summer meal to your menu this week! Serve with chips and grapes or watermelon. Yum!

What Pressure Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwiches I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.
