Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken

by Sheryl

If you are like me who has a kid who’s crazy about chicken I’m sure you’ll need this recipe. When my daughter was just a toddler her favorite is the skin of the chicken but when she grew older she prefers the chicken meat. She will eat anything that has chicken on it or any chicken dish you can think of. Her favorite though is the classic fried chicken, well not until she tasted this gorgeous Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken. She was hooked, I’ll tell you that. I remember this one time that she requested for this to be served almost every dinner! Good thing this recipe is very easy to make and you just need 5 ingredients to make it happen. I have used different parts of chicken (breasts, thighs, wings, or legs) for this and still, it’s delicious. Sometimes I add crushed red pepper or a squirt of Sriracha to spice it up a little or for a deeper caramel flavor, you can use dark brown sugar instead. And yes, you can make this meal in the oven, too! Just roast the chicken (don’t forget the foil though) over 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Then serve with rice or potato wedges and roasted vegetable or mashed potatoes (whatever works for you) and dinner is served! A perfect weeknight meal for you and your family.
