crock pot brown sugar chicken

I tried this recipe today and it is a keeper!

Crock Pot Brown Sugar Chicken

This is the link to the site where I found the recipe for Crock Pot Brown Sugar Chicken. Below is the recipe with the changes I made.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and six boneless, skinless thighs
3/4 c. white sugar
1 T. unsulphered molasses
2/3 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. Sprite [Next time I will leave this out and add 1 tsp. lemon juice.]
4 minced garlic cloves [Could have used more.]
2 T. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Place the chicken in a greased crock pot. Pour the other ingredients over the chicken. No need to stir. Cook on high for four hours. It could be cooked on low for 8 hours. Serve over rice. The chicken would be delicious served on sandwiches.

If your family likes sweet peppers, I think those would be great in this.

To make the rice, I put the liquid from the crock pot (liquid measured 4 cups) in a saucepan. Added two cups of rice, covered it with a tight lid and brought it to a boil. I immediately turned it down to a bare simmer and let it simmer for 25 minutes without lifting the lid. So good with the chicken!

A green salad and some crusty bread would round out a great meal. The recipe is so easy to make and very good. DH commented several times on how much he liked it. He also mentioned it would be great to take to a church dinner, so maybe some of you will get to try it soon. 🙂 Definitely a keeper.

By the way, I don’t buy brown sugar anymore. I just add some molasses to white sugar. Same thing. Maybe I should change the name of the recipe…

    Man! This sounds good enough to be a “company” dinner. Will try soon.

    Hilary, it has a definite sweet vibe, but not overpowering at all. The vinegar cuts the sweetness. It is delicious. DH said, “oh, good!” when I told him I had put it on the menu for this week. ~~Rhonda

    I threw one of Julie’s chickens in a crock, poured the sugar, white vinegar, and garlic on, then realized I have no lemon or soy sauce. Is it ok to sit in the refridgerator until morning, when I can get the rest on the way to work ?

    Marinade, sort of….

    Sure, it can sit in the fridge or you can cook it with just those things. Add some salt and pepper. It will be fine. Just not the same. 🙂
