Sweet 'N Savory Garlic Chicken

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.
