Slow Cooker Sweet Garlic Chicken {slow cooker}

As you may have noticed, my blog posting has really slowed down. Our life is so incredibly busy that I don't have a lot of time to post! I am so glad I sat down to post this one though. It is made in the slow cooker (yay!) and it was tasty too! I loved having it on top of a cornbread pancake. I think that is my kiddos favorite part!

Slow Cooker Sweet Garlic Chicken
from My Fridge Recipes

4-6 chicken breasts
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
2-3 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 Tablespoons corn starch
2 Tablespoons water
Red pepper flakes (optional)

Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken  inside slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, vinegar, soda, garlic, soy sauce, and pepper together. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours. 

Take chicken pieces out of slow cooker and pour remaining sauce into saucepan. Place saucepan over high heat. Mix together corn starch and water, pour into saucepan, and mix well. Let sauce come to a boil and boil for 2-3 minutes, or until it starts to thicken and turns into a glaze. Remove from heat and let sit for a minute or two (it will continue to thicken as it cools down). Top with additional sauce and sprinkle red pepper flakes on top if desired. 

This can be served over rice or noodles. We served it on top of a cornbread pancake
