Slow Cooker Garlic & Brown Sugar Chicken

Slow Cooker Garlic & Brown Sugar Chicken

Ingredients

  • 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lemon lime soda
  • 2-3 T minced garlic
  • 2 T soy sauce (GF use La Choy)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 2 T water
  • Steamed rice
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions

  1. Place chicken slow cooker sprayed with cooking spray. Mix together brown sugar, vinegar, soda, garlic, soy sauce, and pepper. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  2. Take chicken pieces out of slow cooker and pour remaining sauce into saucepan (I poured mine through a fine mesh strainer first). Place saucepan over high heat. Mix together corn starch and water, pour into saucepan and mix well. Let sauce come to a boil and boil for 2-3 minutes, or until it starts to thicken and turns into a glaze. Remove from heat and let sit for a minute or two (it will continue to thicken as it cools down).
  3. Serve chicken over rice or noodles and top with glaze. Sprinkle red pepper flakes on top if desired.
