What type of vinegar is best with this recipe (garlic brown sugar chicken)?
Hi Beth! I don’t think it matters what vinegar you use, but I would use apple cider vinegar if you have it on your shelf! Happy Crocking!
This meal has become a family favorite. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I have shared this with my family and friends and everyone LOVES this super easy recipe.
Thank you so much for sharing Debra! Always appreciate feed back on the recipes! Happy Crocking!
I had way too much liquid left over. I halved the recipe as I used a bit more than half of he bird. The taste is pretty good. Will try again with some more modifications.
Could you use boneless, skinless chicken breasts as well?
Hi Karen, Absolutely! You can use any kind of chicken you would like, as this is the fun of cooking… change things up a bit! Also use your favorite spices. There is a spice my husband just doesn’t like, so I never add that particular spice. Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
Hi… Well I tried this recipe the other day, not having any 7-up or sprite, i substituted with beer. and a little extra brown sugar…….. It was equally delicious !
Thanks for the recipe.
I used chicken legs and substituted berry sparkling water for the pop. It turned out amazing! My 18 mth old son even scarfed it down and he is not a huge meat eater. Definitely a keeper recipe!
If using boneless skinless chicken beast, how many would you use?
Hi Megan… I would use about 5-6 Chicken Breasts! Happy Crocking!
I love this, made it tonight. Since I’ve started using my crock pot I’ve had trouble keeping my chicken from being dry. Any suggestions?
Hi Kim, it sounds like your slow cooker is crocking a little hot. You might want to check with the manufacturer to see if they have a suggestion for you. Good Luck!
This looks so good I can’t wait to try it.
I used re wine vinegar. Hope it tastes as good as it smells.
You can substitute pork loin chops for the chicken and it is still very delicious. The pork almost melts in your mouth with a hint of sweet n sour flavor. VERY tasty, the kids LOVE it!
I did this recipe with boneless skinless chicken breast. Ended up with morefof a pulled chicken. Will eat it as a sandwich. Great taste! Any suggestions?
Dede it sounds like your slow cooker crocks a little hot, next time you should not crock it as long, and use a meat thermometer to make sure it is done. 🙂
Too vinegary… Am I the only one that experienced that?
This looks good! How long would it take if you cooked it on high instead of low?
Joanna it will take about 3-4 hours on High, but would definitely check it in 3 hours.
I am cooking this in my crockpot now and I’m concerned because all I can smell is vinegar and I only have 1.5 hrs left of cooking. I definitely used the proper amount.
this sounds soo good.. I will be making this.
Love using my crockpot.
