Easy Recipes: Crockpot Candy Chicken

Sharing is caring!

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.

Amazing!

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.

 

Ingredients:

  • 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

OPTIONAL: 3 T cornstarch and reserved cooking juices (watch the video at the end for details).

Easy, right?

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!
