It should be noted that this chicken has been named "Candy Chicken" in our house. I don't think my kids have ever eaten so much chicken in their lives. If you are bored with dried out, boring chicken, you must try this.
You simply must.
Go to the store and buy the ingredients.
serves 4 to 6
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 tablespoons soy sauce (La Choy and Tamari wheat free are GF)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Use a 4 quart crockpot for this recipe.
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.
Seriously. Go to the store. This is what's for dinner.
I have LITERALLY made THOUSANDS of CrockPot Slow Cooker recipes. Not all of them were successful, but these are the Top Ten Reader Favorites. Enjoy!!
