Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken

I just read an interesting  article in Marieclaire.com that discussed Meghan Markle's diet now that she has become a member of the royal family. Although she's allowed to eat anything behind closed doors, while in public acting in a royal capacity, certain dietary restrictions apply:

As a royal, Meghan is not allowed to eat garlic while traveling—at least not while she's on official royal visits anyway. 

Per Sunday Express"Garlic is banned from being included in foods eaten by royal family members. With many meetings between official visitors, it is thought to be advised against to prevent any awkward bad breath."
Shellfish is restricted as well: 

Members of the royal family are also not allowed to eat shellfish while traveling for royal visits, due to the high risk of food poisoning associated with the dish...

It's certainly nice to be able to eat what you want, when you want including this tasty garlicky recipe I found at Diethood.com. I love garlic, so if you do too, I'm sure you'll enjoy this easy Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken!

I'll have to try it--the chicken, not life as a royal. I wouldn't make it past the first day!
