All Day Chinese Chicken Recipe / A Slow Cooker Love Affair

May 4, 2012

Thanks to a nudge from a co-worker this girl took a step in the domesticated direction and bought a (pause here for dramatic effect) slow cooker. I may not see an apron and pearls in my future, but hot damn, it has changed my life.

I started out with a recipe for vegetable lasagna and liked it so much I made it again a couple days later to take to work. Naturally, I’ve been scouring the internets (read: pinterest) for more recipes. (side note: did you know there’s a community of slow cooker connoisseurs  competing to be the next crock-star?? I hope you can feel my eyes rolling).

Anywho, on to the newest recipe!

All Day Chinese Chicken 

2 pounds boneless chicken pieces
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon-lime soda (like Sprite)
3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch, mixed with
2 tablespoons water

Place chicken in crockpot. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over chicken. Cover; cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over rice or noodles.

(Addition: I threw in some frozen broccoli and sugar snap peas to bulk up this recipe. I may adjust the corn starch amount, too, because I like my sauces thicker).

Here’s a couple more recipes on my list to try:

Barbeque Tofu
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Mac ‘n Cheese
Orange Chicken

    More cornstarch would be a mistake and the extra vegetables were an excellent choice.
