Slow Cooker Saturday: Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken

Slow Cooker Saturday is here. We are gonna make it short and sweet today.

My witty banter and wise insights...okay pretty much just the banter...is going to be in short supply today. I am sure you are super disappointed. Hahaha.

Today we have Oldest's non-party-birthday-celebration which has turned into a little more of a party than first anticipated. I have no idea who's fault that is...

Hubby is pointing at me.

Yup, my fault.

My brain is fuzzy and full of check lists.

Since my head is unable to put together a coherent thought, I am going to tell you...

...this meal is yummy.
...this meal is easy
...this meal is a hit with kiddos

So before I fall asleep and my face gets a keyboard impression in it, I will share this week's slow cooker recipe with you.


Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken
adapted from Six Sisters' Stuff 

2-3 large chicken breasts
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 white vinegar
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup diet lemon lime soda
2 heaping Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground pepper
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 Tablespoons water
white rice
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds

Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken inside the slow cooker. Mix the brown sugar, vinegars, soda, garlic, soy sauce, and pepper together. 

Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 

Take pieces out and gently shred into larger pieces. Set aide.

Pour the sauce into the saucepan. Place the pan over high heat. Mix the cornstarch and water together. Whisk into the sauce pan.

Let the sauce come to a boil and let it boil for 2-3 minute, or until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and let it sit for a couple more minutes to thicken even more.

Pour the reserved sauce over the chicken and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and stir again.

Serve over rice.

Enjoy friends! Thanks for letting me keep it brief today, have a great weekend!
