Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken



This recipe was very yummy, something all three of us enjoyed. I've really been getting my money's worth outta this Crock Pot, I tell you! I love that most of the cooking is done in the slow cooker and then you broil it for a few minutes to make it crispy. Genius!

Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken

3 lbs chicken thighs (you can use any kind of chicken you want, I bought the cheapest that week)
3/4 cup brown sugar, divided
1/4 cup soy sauce, divided
1 teaspoon ground ginger
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne (omitted, shh don't tell my husband :)
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup water

Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in the slow cooker. Add chicken and stir to coat evenly.


Cook chicken for 4 hours on low or until done. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, water, and tomato paste. When chicken is done, place on a lined cookie sheet and brush all sides with sauce.


Pour extra sauce over chicken (don't waste one bit, trust me!). Broil for about 5 minutes or until desired crispness. Serve with white rice.
