Slow Cooker Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken

 



 

 

I’m back!  One thing my grandma truly loved was food, and she would not want me to stop sharing garlic recipes.  Today, I wanted to share a crock-pot recipe.  I love using my crock pot, and have been trying lots of different recipes to build up a good rotation.  For a while, it seemed like everything I slow-cooked (mainly chicken!) always came out tasting the same…bland.  Of course, a lot of the recipes have had similar ingredients, b/c I just can’t be too creative with my family.  They have really boring taste buds  This chicken dish, found at Six Sister’s Stuff, was a hit with everyone. Except Mr. Three, who eats nothing
