I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 

I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again. 






Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken

6 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C rice vinegar
1/3 C ginger ale soda
4-5 large cloves garlic, minces
2 Tbs soy sauce
1 Tbs sesame oil
fresh ground pepper
2 Tbs corn starch
2 Tbs water

Place chicken in a 6 qt crock pot. 

In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger ale, minced garlic, soy sauce and pepper. Pour over chicken breast. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hrs.

Remove cooked chicken from slow cooker and and cover loosely with foil. Pour cooking liquid into a sauce pot and heat to boiling. Combine the cornstarch and water, in a small bowl. Remove pot from heat and whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Return pot to the heat and whisk until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Cook for 2 minutes.

Shred chicken and place in a serving bowl. Pour thickened glaze over chicken and toss to coat. Serve with rice or noodles.

  10. This looks delicious and oh so simple (my kind of recipe!). Would you recommend a mild ginger ale, like Canada Dry, or something with a stronger ginger taste?

    1. Canada Dry is our preferred ginger ale of choice, so it's the one I use for the recipe.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
