OMG~THIS WAS SO GOOD. Family was very firm w/ "MAKE THIS AGAIN and DON'T CHANGE A THING". OK..BUT Here's what I will do different... -reserve a good portion of the sauce for after cooking.. because there was plenty for doing that and the juice from the chicken cooking thinned the sauce considerably. OK..correction: check my recipes for one called "YUM". You will want to make a little extra sauce for serving and reserve that cooking liquid for an absolute addictive "YUM" the next day.

How To Make sweet and saucy chicken

  • 1
    Place chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar and flour. Stir in the water, vinegar and soy sauce. Add the ketchup, onion, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
  • 2
    Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken juices run clear.
  • 3's where I switch it up a little bit. SAVE THE LEFTOVERS---!! you will want to debone the chicken, thicken up the sauce a little bit and add some pasta for something I can only call addictive "YUM" and don't judge the YUM by its beginnings because the flavors just become something even more wonderful in the refridgerator.
