CROCK POT SWEET GARLIC CHICKEN


This is a really great crock pot recipe! Serve over rice, baked potatoes, pasta or wrapped in a tortilla! 

CROCK POT SWEET GARLIC CHICKEN

4-6 chicken breasts (frozen or thawed)
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
2/3 c. vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1/4 c. lemon-lime soda
2-3 Tbsp. minced garlic
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. black pepper
2 Tbsp. corn starch
2 Tbsp. water
3-4 green onions, chopped for garnish (optional)

Spray a 5 or 6 quart crock pot with non stick spray (or line it with those AMAZING crock pot liners you can buy).

Put the chicken in the bottom of the crockpot.

In a medium mixing bowl combine the brown sugar, vinegar, soda, garlic, soy sauce and pepper.  Mix well.

Pour over the chicken, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.

When done, remove the chicken to a large plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Pour the sauce from the crock pot into a medium size sauce pan.  
Bring sauce to a boil. 
Mix together the water and cornstarch. While sauce is boiling slowly whisk in the cornstarch mix, and continue whisking until the sauce has thickened, usually 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for a couple of minutes (remember that the sauce will continue to thicken while it cools).
  
Pour the sauce over individual servings of the chicken or you can mix all the chicken into the sauce-however you like it!
  
Enjoy!
