Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking
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

Directions:  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.

Here's what you'll need:

Put the chicken down in the crockpot and add all of the other ingredients on top.

Here's what you'll end up with:

Our Thoughts:
This dish was really good.  It was sweet and the chicken was fall-apart tender.  I, personally, could have used just a touch of spicy . . . maybe some type of oriental-type pepper.  I ladled all of the sauce out of the bottom of the crockpot and put it in a separate bowl so everyone get put it all over their rice.

I served this with rice and one of Scott's very favorite dishes-EVER.   Cheesy Cauliflower

Hope you enjoy!

noticed the recipe calls for skinless chicken...looks like you use chicken with the I correct? Do you think skinless would dry it out?
