Another easy crockpot recipe! Another easy crockpot recipe!
Number of Servings: 6


    --12 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or 6 boneless, skinless breast halves
    --1 cup brown sugar (it's okay. you can brush your teeth after.)
    --1/4 cup lemon-lime soda (stay with me...)
    --2/3 cup vinegar (I used white wine, but think regular white would be fine)
    --3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
    --2 T soy sauce (La Choy and Tamari wheat free are GF)
    --1 tsp ground black pepper
    Chile Powder


Use a 5-6 quart crockpot for this recipe.

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!

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.

Serve over a bowl of white rice with a ladle full of the broth.
