Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken

Oh my word! This is the best chicken we have ever eaten. All my kids ate this.. AND they ate the greenbeans that I made, too, because I sauteed them and put some of the chicken juice on them! Woohoo!

The Menu:
Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken

The Original Recipe:
This comes from crockpot365.blogspot. She is right, it tastes like candy, and we called it candy chicken for the kids. They ate it! I used 4 chicken breasts and shredded them a bit because they cooked to tender. I sauteed green beans on the stove with some of the juice from the chicken. I served it in a bowl with brown rice, green beans and then chicken on top.

Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken

--12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or 6 boneless, skinless breast halves
--1 cup brown sugar (it's okay. you can brush your teeth after.)
--1/4 cup lemon-lime soda (stay with me...)
--2/3 cup vinegar (I used white wine, but think regular white would be fine)
--3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
--2 T soy sauce (La Choy and Tamari wheat free are GF)
--1 tsp ground black pepper

The Directions.
Use a 5-6 quart crockpot for this recipe. Plop the chicken into your crockpot. Cover with the brown sugar, pepper, chopped garlic, and soy sauce. Add the vinegar, and pour in the soda. It will bubble!Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours, or on high for 4-5. The chicken is done when it is cooked through and has reached desired consistency. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will be.Serve over a bowl of white rice with a ladle full of the broth.
