Crock-Pot Brown Sugar "candy" Chicken

This recipe came from the family cookbook and I just could not wait to try it. Therefore when I decided that I wanted to come up with our family's own traditional New Year's Day meal (without the pork. I don't eat much pork and I had already hit my quota by New Year's dinner) this recipe was what I was looking for!

Crock-Pot Brown Sugar "Candy" Chicken

*4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used breasts and Andy made them into tenders)

*1 cup brown sugar (I used succanant)

*1/2 cup lemon-lime soda (I used 7-Up)

*2/3 c vinegar- any type (I used apple cidar)

*3 cloves minced garlic

*2 Tbsp. soy sauce
*1 tsp. pepper

Place chicken in crockpot. Cover with brown sugar, pepper, garlic and soy sauce. Add in the vinegar and soda - it should bubble a little bit. Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high. The chicken is done when it cooks through and has reached desired consistency. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will be. Serve over rice with a ladle full of broth.

This recipe was so simple. I loved that I started it in the morning and just left if going all day. It was tastey and everyone loved it! I also doubled the recipe and all turned out great!

How about you? Did you try any new recipes this New Years? What was on the menu at your house?
