This dish is hubby's go-to. The sauce brings out the best flavors



5 succulent chicken breasts

2/3 cup refreshing apple cider vinegar

1 cup densely packed brown sugar

2-3 tablespoons of aromatic garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup zesty lemon-lime soda (pick your preference: regular or diet)

2 tablespoons savory soy sauce

1 teaspoon freshly milled black pepper

2 tablespoons cornstarch coupled with 2 tablespoons water

Optional: A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes for that extra zing!


Arrange the chicken breasts snugly inside the slow cooker.

In a mixing bowl, fuse together the brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, lemon-lime soda, garlic, soy sauce, and black pepper.

Drizzle this vibrant mix over the chicken, ensuring an even coating.

Close the slow cooker's lid and let it cook on a low flame for 6-8 hours, or if you're short on time, a high setting for 3-4 hours should suffice.

As the chicken cooks, whisk together the cornstarch and water to form a smooth mixture.

Once cooked, relocate the chicken from the slow cooker.

Transfer the liquid gold from the cooker to a pan and simmer on medium heat.

Mix in the cornstarch mixture and let it bubble until the sauce achieves a rich consistency (roughly 3-5 minutes).

For those who like a bit of fire, sprinkle in some crushed red pepper flakes.

Reintroduce the chicken to the slow cooker, drench with the sauce, and ensure a generous coating.

Serve this culinary masterpiece with complementary sides like fluffy rice or steamed veggies.
