Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of a 6 quart or larger slow cooker.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, vinegar, apple juice, garlic, soy sauce and pepper and then pour over the chicken in the slow cooker.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from the slow cooker and set aside on a plate.
  5. Carefully pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer on the stove-top.
  6. While the liquid is coming to a simmer, combine the cornstarch and cold water in a small cup or bowl to create a slurry.
  7. Slowly pour the slurry mixture into the simmering sauce in the pan and simmer while stirring until the mixture begins to thicken, about 2 to 3 minutes and forms a glaze.
  8. Serve chicken with sauce/glaze over top for a delicious meal.
Recipe Notes

To make clean up easier you may wish to either line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Freezer Meal Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a 1 gallon size zippered freezer bag OR FoodSaver bag.
  2. Place bag on flat surface and seal bag closed while pressing out as much excess air as possible OR use your FoodSaver sealing system to vacuum seal the bag closed.
  3. Label bag with date prepared, name of recipe, ingredients and cooking instructions.
  4. Lay bag flat in freezer and allow to freeze for several hours. At that point you can stand the bags upright in your freezer if desired.

To Cook Freezer Meal:

  • Remove freezer meal bag from freezer and place either in refrigerator overnight OR in a clean kitchen sink filled with cool water for several hours just until the freezer meal is partially thawed enough to dump the contents of the bag into the slow cooker.
  • Cook according to the recipe directions adding 1 additional hour cooking time (in this case 7 to 9 hours on LOW or 4 to 5 hours on HIGH from the partially thawed state ).
