A Quick & Easy Recipe for the Slow Cooker (that is not mine)

I cannot take credit for this recipe. It’s from A Year of Slow Cooking, which is a fantastic blog for people who need ideas for using their crock pot. But I put the recipe into Sous Chef (see link inside recipe) so I could print it off in a neat fashion & keep it in my binder of recipes.

So, this is for Krystin!

Crock Pot Brown Sugar Chicken

“Candy Chicken”


  1. 12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or 6 boneless, skinless breast halves
  2. 1 cup brown sugar
  3. 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
  4. 2/3 cup vinegar (I used white wine, but think regular white would be fine)
  5. 3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
  6. 2 T soy sauce
  7. 1 tsp ground pepper


  1. Plop the chicken into your crockpot. Cover with the brown sugar, pepper, chopped garlic, and soy sauce. Add the vinegar, and pour in the soda. It will bubble!
  2. 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.
  3. Serve over a bowl of white rice with a ladle full of the broth.
