November 25 Brown Sugar Chicken

This is from the Make it Fast, Cook it Slow cookbook by Stephanie O'Dea. I have it on my Christmas list. If it is not under my tree I will go out and purchase a copy during the after holiday sales. I love this book and have fallen asleep reading it several nights.

  • 12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
Use a 4-quart slow cooker. Plop the chicken into your crock. Cover with the brown sugar, black pepper, chopped garlic, and soy sauce. Add the vinegar, and pour in the soda. It will bubble! Cover and cook on low for 6 to 9 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. Serve over white rice with a ladle full of sauce.

Audrey's Tasks:

  2. Cover and turn on cooker
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey
Nothing much to these slow cooker recipes. I learned early on not to mess with the complicated ones. This one was good but I felt the sauce needed to be thickened in order to really go well with the meal. If I fix it again I will throw in some corn starch in the end and make a thick sauce. Audrey made this for her grandparents and aunt and uncle during the holiday break. They enjoy it.
