    This was just way to sweet for me, maybe next time i’ll modify a bit and reduce the sugar.

    Leslie A,
    I hated that as well! I am a single working mom and coming home to overcooked dinner in your crockpot is NOT a helper but a hindrance!! I spent the money and bought an electronic crockpot w/ a better temp control and the ability to set it and control it more, this problem went away! It was a bit pricy but saved in the long run! I also never need a whole 8 hrs on food unless the meat is frozen so timers on my crock are MANDATORY as I work an 8hr day! Hope this helps!!! :)

    LOVE they changes you made to it, Jessica! Sounds crock-a-licious!!

    I loved this recipe! I made a few changes. I added corn, peas, carrots, and used chicken breast. For some reason mine was actually very sour so I actually added honey the last hour and some chili flakes and it was so good, kinda sweet and sour and tiny but spicy. I served over rice with scallions and crispy wonton strips and even my picky husband loved it!

    Just got done eating this for dinner; Followed recipe with the substitution of chicken breast …I know most will like, but if you don’t like really sweet dishes, this one is not for you. Too sweet for my family, I know, I know… what did I expect with “brown sugar chicken” This is very similar to Chicken Adobo; If you like it sweet, you will like this.

    I loved this recipe. My hubby loved it too. I used low sodium soy sauce and chicken breast. Those were the only changes I made. I thickened it up at the end and poured over basmati rice. YUMMY!!!

    Katrina, there is about 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder to 1 medium clove. I would use 1 teaspoon of garlic powder in this recipe. If you use frozen chicken, add some cooking time. Keep it Crockin’!

  10. Katrina S.

    Instead of using minced garlic can you use garlic powder? If so, how much should be used? Do you start with the chicken frozen or thawed?

    The recipe calls for white vinegar but it would be good with apple cider vinegar.

  12. Tricia R.

    What kind of vinegar do you recommend?

    Lynne, Boneless chicken breast would work fine. Make sure you use 4-6 breasts according on the size of your chicken.

  14. Lynne K.

    Do you think this would be OK with boneless skinless chicken breasts?

    Lesli…I also forgot to mention, but it sounds like your crock cooks hot. Just like other cooking appliances, not all crocks cook the same. We’ve heard some boil on low not long after they’re turned on. IMO that’s not a “slow cooker.” I would try to crock a meal while you can be home, so you can see how your crock cooks…get to know her :) Try out a chicken dish, since you can easily see with a meat probe when the chicken is done. If it’s good and tender after only 4 or 5 hours, then you know how to adjust recipes to the way your crock cooks. But I am soooo, sooo sorry. I feel for ya, girl :( Also, soups and stews and chilis seem to do better in “hot” crocks.

    Lesli, so sorry this meal did not work out for you. I hate it when a recipe doesn’t go the way it should. I feel for you, girl. Keep Crockin’!

    Not edible! Prepared as said, crocked for 8 hours on low (little less actually)… it was a burned mess! Had to throw out! $$$ wasted when money is tight and hungry kidos. I’m trying to make meals in the crock pot as I’m a working mom like many… this was not a good thing.

  18. Carol V.

    LOVED! It was really watery in the end so I’d say turn it on high for the last few hours and thicken up the sauce but fantastic none the less.

  19. Christina H.

    This was delicious will make this again with just a little spicy less brown sugar.
