Slow Cooker Easy Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken
I am always on the lookout for a different way to cook chicken. My kids love chicken and I can always find a decent deal on chicken at the grocery store when I watch for good sales. I found this recipe and knew immediately that I had to try it out!
The brown sugar and garlic added a nice flavor to the chicken breast meat. I was really impressed at how the sweet and savory flavor of the brown sugar and garlic really infused into the meat making each bite tender, juicy and packed with a lot of flavor. The kids really enjoyed this recipe too and it is one I will be making again and again I am sure!
I added a side of steamed rice and spooned some of the leftover liquid from the crock-pot over the rice and it was delicious!
You can also easily make this into a freezer meal by doing a bit of prep work ahead of time and adding everything to a freezer bag!

This recipe was alright. I followed the directions exactly. The brown sugar never dissolved, instead began to caramelize. I quickly removed and added to the chicken. The chicken did come out moist. The flavor was sweet and savory but kind of bland. Missing something. This one was a no go at my house.
Like Kristen said this recipe was meh.
Followed the directions exactly but like she said the brown sugar never dissolved, but started to caramelize. I to quickly removed it and added it to the chicken but mine immediately got hard.
The chicken did come out moist but flavor was not the greatest, it was slightly sweet and pretty much bland.
This one was a no go at my house too. Will NOT make this again.

I will try this, but will add salt and pepper. I think that will help the flavor that these reviewers said was missing.
When run through the recipe builder, I found this recipe was actually 9 points per serving. That’s on the new Green WW but important to note.
