Last week I was completely clueless about what to make for dinner one night, but wanted something new and different. Ok honestly, we really needed groceries from the store, but was not feeling like going out. Trying to think of something to cook with the ingredients that I had on hand was somewhat a challenge that I did not care to wrack my brain over. Next best thing?? Turn to Pinterest! I decided that being even more lazy was part of the plan that day and busted out the Crock Pot and got to work on finding a recipe. After several minutes, I settled on....
Garlic & Brown Sugar Chicken!
Don't give me those looks, people! I know you think it sounds weird! Trust me, I did too! Wait until you try this, though! It is so delicious, fall apart, juicy, sweet and savory chicken. I got a two thumbs up from Bryan, meaning this will be made again!
What you need:
1 large chicken, cut into serving pieces ( I used chicken breasts)
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup Sprite or 7-Up soda
2-3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon pepper (regular black or cayenne)
What to do:
Place chicken in slow cooker.
Mix all ingredients and pour over chicken.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours (you can thicken the juices after cooking with a little cornstarch).
You should definitely try this one out! You will be pleasantly surprised!
