Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

This recipe is so easy and yummy!! There are 7 ingredients in it and you dump it all in a crockpot and let it cook all day!! Here is a recipe for those of you who like to fix it and forget it!! May kids ate this up quick!!

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken
4-6 chicken breasts(thawed or Frozen)
3/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup lemon lime soda but I only had an apple soda in the fridge so that is what I used(I don't think it matters what kind other than don't use grape/mountain dew or orange
2-3 T. minced garlic
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon pepper

Place chicken in the crockpot. Mix all the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and dump over chicken in crockpot. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 4-6 hours. About 10 minutes before serving it. I thickened the sauce with cornstarch because we like a little thicker sauce. I cooked mine with frozen chicken breast on high for about 5 hours. I shredded the chicken a little bit with a fork also. You can leave it whole if you like big chunks of chicken. I cooked my rice with a can of coconut milk in it. I replaced some of the water used to cook the rice with the coconut milk. It gave the rice a good flavor. I also added Sriracha sauce (hot chili sauce)on top of my chicken and rice because I like it spicy. If I didn't need to serve it to my kids I would have added it to the crock pot.

Ok, si I was going to do a chicken crock pot recipe from a ward member today, but now I'm totally doing this! Does it have to be soda or could I use juice?

Yummy. I'm really thinking I need to try those peanut butter cup things too.

I went ahead and used lemon juice and turned out awesome! It has definitely earned a spot in the rotation. We put crunchy chow mein noodles on it and loved it. It was actually Zoe's idea!

This looks so yummy, I was actually looking for an easy recipe since we have the missionaires comin' tonight. So you have FHS PB bars?! I was actually thinking about them the other day, so delish, I'll have to try those too. Do you happen to have a recipe for another FHS fav, mexican cheese rolls?
