Crock-Pot Sweet Garlic Chicken

Yay, it’s Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the weekend! So let’s get this post a-going so we can enjoy this weekend.

Yesterday I fixed a new recipe that I found on Pinterest. If you like the smell of garlic and soy sauce simmering, then you’re going to love this recipe!

Prep was easy-peasy.

  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda (diet or regular)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons minced garlic (I used fresh garlic)
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

Either spray your slow cooker with a non-stick spray or use slow cooker liners. (Personally, I think the liners are awesome! Makes cleanup so much easier.) Place chicken (frozen, thawed or fresh – mine was frozen) inside cooker. Mix together sugar, vinegar, soda, garlic, soy sauce and pepper. Pour over chicken and cover. Cook on low 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.

Once chicken is fully cooked, take pieces out of cooker and pour remaining sauce into saucepan. Heat sauce over med-high to high heat. Combine cornstarch and water together, pour into saucepan, and mix well. Let sauce boil until it thickens and becomes a glaze, stirring often. (mine thickened very quickly) I served the chicken on a bed of white rice and steamed veggies on the side!

Hope y’all have a great weekend!
