This made my house smell scrumptious.
The sweet and savory combination in this dish was spot on. Thank you Providence Design.
The best part about it, it was a mix-n-walk away dish thanks to my lovely slow cooker.
I love my slow cooker just for that fact alone. I can walk away and when I return a dish is ready to be served. Genius.
So what are you waiting for? Get mixin'
4 chicken breasts (I used frozen)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
2-3 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 Tablespoons corn starch
2-5 Tablespoons water
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Mix the brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, lime soda, garlic, soy sauce and black pepper in a bowl.
Place the chicken breast at the bottom of the slow cooker and pour the liquid mixture on top.
Cook for 4 hours on high or 6-8 on low. I did 8. Please note: The longer you cook it the longer the darker looking the chicken becomes.
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and set aside (it may fall apart, that's ok. )
Pour the sauce from the bottom of the slow cooker in a pan and bring to boil. Add in the 2tbs corn starch, red pepper flakes,
and 2-5 tbs of water. The more water you use, the thinner the sauce (I used 2).
Boil for 2-3 min until it become a nice, thick glaze.
Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
