Slow-cooker sweet garlic chicken


I found this recipe on Facebook… It’s simple and delicious and smells absolutely divine! I’m a bit crook at the moment with a nasty head cold, and the garlic smell wafting through the house was just what I needed.
The recipe calls for chicken breasts. I used thighs instead as I find the breasts a bit dry for my taste. I think next time I will add a little chilli to the mix to zing it up.

Slow-cooked sweet garlic chicken

4-6 chicken breasts
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
2-3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons cornflour
2 tablespoons water

Spray slow cooker pan with oil. Place chicken in the base. Mix together the brown sugar, vinegar, soda, garlic, soy sauce and pepper. Pour over the chicken and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours. Remove the chicken from the pan – it will fall apart! Pour the sauce into a saucepan and set heat to high. Combine the cornflour and water and mix into the sauce. Bring to the boil and boil for 3-4 mins until the mixture thickens and becomes glossy. Set aside for a couples of minutes then pour over the chicken. Serve with rice or noodles….
