This is a delicious crock pot recipe that I found on this site, but adapted it to my own tastes. It smells great while it is cooking! After cooking it for 3 hours, I took out the chicken and placed it in a serving dish, then took the sauce and added cornstarch to make it thicker. The sauce was then used to pour over the chicken or the rice. Some other ideas I have, which I would like to try sometime, would be to cut up the chicken into strips and then add stir-fry veggies to the chicken and sauce. This would be like a stir-fry! (one that would take a while though) Who knows, maybe we will try it sometime!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, large (I cut them each in half)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2⁄3 cup vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup Sprite (or any lemon-lime pop)
- 3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- Place chicken in crock pot.
- Mix all remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.
- Cook on high for 3 hours (up to 3 1/2 hours).
- Works great over cooked rice.
Great taste. We liked this one. Remember to stir occasionally. I found my chicken sticking together. Second time I made this I tried the stir-fry approach. Cooked the chicken about 2 hours then added some frozen snow peas, onions & mushrooms. Served over rice with egg rolls on the side. My husband loves this and there's always enough for lunch the next day.
Too sweet for our taste.
This was very good. I suggest changing the recipe name though. It's really a sweet -and-sour type of sauce. I had to substitute lemon and lime juice for the Sprite, and Worchestshire sauce for the soy sauce. These worked well. I think it was a bit over done after 3 hours in the crockpot on high. Next time I'll try 2.5 hours. Thanks for posting. DH loved it.
