I made this last night, and it was sooooo yummy!!! I got it from the crockpot lady again: http://www.crockpot365.blogspot.com/ Her kids call it, "Candy Chicken," and that's a great name for it. It's very sweet and a little tangy. It's so delicious! I had 2 HUGE breasts, and I cooked them on high for 4 hours, but next time I will do them on low 5-6 hours. They turned out great, but I know then they will just fall apart.
-12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or 6 boneless, skinless breast halves (I used 2 pounds of chicken breasts, and I could have added another pound and still had enough sauce)
-1 cup brown sugar
-1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
-2/3 cup white vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
-3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic (or minced)
-2 tbsp soy sauce (watch for gluten/wheat free brands)
-1 tsp ground black pepper
Use a 5-6 quart crockpot for this recipe.
Put the chicken into your crockpot. Cover with the brown sugar, pepper, chopped garlic, and soy sauce. Add the vinegar, and pour in the soda.
Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours, or on high for 4-5. The chicken is done when it is cooked through and has reached desired consistency. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will be.
Serve over a bowl of white rice with a ladle full of the broth. I made 1 1/2 cups, before cooking, of rice
I don't think rice freezes all that well sometimes, so if you want to freeze this, don't freeze the rice but make fresh rice when you go to serve it.
