Oh my heavens this has got to be one of my favorite recipes to date. My friend good friend Amanda sent me a recipe a few weeks ago for her recipe for Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken and said I had to give it a try because it was so yum and her kids loved it when she made it for dinner.
I have to admit because I was kind of skeptical. So many recipes for chicken in the slow cooker come out dry. Not all of them, but quite a few.
Not this recipe the chicken was as moist as moist can be and super tasty.
My husband Russ has a thing (more like an obsession) with garlic. He would put it on ice cream if given the chance. So he LOVED this recipe. And the kids…lets just say they don’t always LOVE my recipe creations. We usually have 1 kid who does not like dinner (and that kid would be Parker, my 11 year old who tends to be the pickest eater. He does not like chicken unless it is nuggets and he does not like casseroles). But all the kids gobbled this dish up!
I am defiantly putting this one on the “to make again” list.
Give it a try and let me know if you and your family liked it as much as ours did!
Freezer Meal Idea: You can easily turn this recipe into a freezer meal by placing your chicken in a gallon sized zippered freezer bag and pouring the sauce over the chicken in the bag then toss the bag in the freezer with a label. To cook, no need to thaw, just add everything to your slow cooker and cook on LOW 8 – 9 hours or on HIGH 4 – 5 hours. Follow the directions in the recipe below for thickening your sauce and you have an easy dinner with just a few minutes of prep time.
