Brown Sugar Chicken
IntroductionThis is another recipe from Stephanie O'Dea's "Make It Fast, Cook It Slow" Crockpot book. And yes, this is ridiculously good. This is another recipe from Stephanie O'Dea's "Make It Fast, Cook It Slow" Crockpot book. And yes, this is ridiculously good.
5 chicken thighs*
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white wine vinegar*
1/4 cup Diet Sprite (or other lemon lime soda)
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp pepper
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Calorie counts are for all the chicken AND all the juices. Remember that the juice is what has the sugar in it, so if you eat only the meat and reserve or toss the cooking liquid, you save yourself a few calories!
Recipe can be doubled easily!
*I bought regular thighs with bone & skin, removed the skin and cooked with bone in, then removed it later - but boneless/skinless will work too
* regular vinegar works fine too
Remove thigh bones (if cooking with whole pieces) and shred the meat - will also help soak up the yummy juices.
Serve with roasted veggies over rice for a complete meal!
Serving Size: Makes 5 Servings (one thigh each)
