If you have been a follower of my site for long, you know one of my favorite meals to cook is called Crockpot Candy Chicken.
I found it 4 or so years ago over on the Crockpot Lady’s website and it was an instant score at our house.
Not only is it a common feature on my weekly meal plan, but I also talk about it all the time in the meal planning classes that I do. It is one of those awesome recipes that requires little effort- you just dump it all in the crockpot and dinner is done in 4-6 hours.
I put my chicken in the crockpot frozen every time I make it. This is a huge time saver for me.
We love this fail-proof dinner and always serve it over steamed rice with a little bit of the juices drizzled over. Easy recipes like this are such a win-win!
Serve it with your favorite veggie (fresh carrots are awesome) and a dinner roll and dinner is done.
- 6 large chicken breasts (or you can do any chicken parts)
- 1 c brown sugar
- 1/4 c Sprite or any lemon lime soda
- 2/3 c vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves (or 2 T of the jarred stuff), minced
- 2 T soy sauce
- 1 t crushed black pepper
Add your chicken to the crockpot.
Like I said, frozen is fine.
Add the garlic, brown sugar and black pepper right over the chicken.
Pour in the vinegar and lemon lime soda.
Pop a lid on it and let it cook in high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
Remember, do not take the lid off. Every time to take the lid off of your crockpot it adds 20 minutes of cook time. Read my 10 crockpot cooking tips to ensure a successful recipe every time!
When it is done it will look like this.
My mouth is watering!
I originally fell in love with Crockpot Candy Chicken over on Stephanie O’dea’s site.
