Slow Cooker Garlic and Brown Sugar Chicken

Wow, things have been a little hectic around here... Started daycare and school back up full time and I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off! Trying to get back into the swing of things and find a routine but that obviously didn't happen this past week! :) I am finally getting a chance to sit down and get a few recipes posted today... Papers and pictures are piling up and I have some good ones to share! :) Hope you enjoy...

I found a couple of recipes that were pretty similar and I wanted to try both of them... This is the first of the two. Definitely yummy, especially with the glaze on top! Our family enjoyed this a lot and you know that I love any recipe that I can use frozen chicken breasts with!!

Slow Cooker Garlic and Brown Sugar Chicken
(recipe found at

4-6 chicken breasts
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup lemon lime soda
2-3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
rice or noodles, cooked

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in slow cooker. Mix together remaining ingredients except cornstarch and water and pour over chicken. Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4 hours. Take chicken out of slow cooker and pour remaining sauce into saucepan. Mix together cornstarch and water, add to sauce pan and mix well. Let sauce come to a boil for 2-3 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and let sit for 2 minutes and allow to thicken. Serve chicken over rice or noodles and top with glaze.
