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!
