Brown Sugar Chicken

I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs - A Year of Crockpotting .   We eat a lot of chicken but honestly I'm sometimes at a lose on how to mix it up a bit.  I came across this one and thought it would be a hit with all of us.

Update:  Verdict is was a hit with the kids but daddy thought it was a little too sweet !

(Pictured borrowed from A year of Crockpotting)

What you need:
  • 12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 6 boneless skinless breast halves. (I used the breast as we don't usually eat thighs.)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 2/3 cup of vinegar (I just used regular white - author used white wine vinegar)
  • 3 cloves of smashed and chopped garlic
  • 2 T soy sauce 
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
How it's made:
  1. Use a 5-6 quart crockpot for this recipe.
  2. Plop the chicken in the crockpot - cover with brown sugar, pepper, chopped garlic and soy sauce.  Add vinegar and pour in soda.  It will bubble ! (mine only did a little bit)
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours or high for 4-5.  The chicken is done when cooked through and reached the desired consistency.  The longer you cook it the more tender it will be.
  4. Serve over a bowl of white rice with a ladle full of the broth.
It smells really good and I'm hoping that it tastes the same !
