1. The blog I found the recipe on A Year of Slow Cooking is, in a word, amazing. The blogger, Stephanie, made a resolution to use her crockpot EVERYDAY in the year 2008. I can appreciate anyone who has that kinda cooking fortitude, you know? Evidently Stephanie was on to something, because now she has a best-selling book on Amazon filled with crockpot recipes, and is make loads of money off little crockpot adventures like mine. You go Glen Coco!!
2. Her kids call this dish, "candy chicken". Since I pretty much have the pallet of a 10 year-old boy, I'm definitely tracking with them. Mac and cheese? Yes. Grilled cheese? Yes. Corndogs? Yes, and please.
3. Here is the list of ingredients:
-- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
-- 1 cup brown sugar
-- 1/4 cup of lemon-lime soda
-- 2/3 cup of vinegar
-- 3 gloves garlic, smashed
-- 2 T soy sauce
-- 1 tsp black pepper
Yes my friends, you read that correctly. LEMON-LIME SODA. SPRITE. SIERRA MIST. POUR. IT. IN. As soon as I read that, I knew I had to make this! I just enjoy the thought of people (namely Joel) being bewildered and bamboozled when I tell them they are eating Sprite covered chicken.
Your friend and Sprite enthusiast,
P.S. I love how Blogger spellcheck wants to correct my use of "crockpot" to either "crock pot" or "crackpot". Crackpot is perfectly acceptable to them. Crockpot? OH, HELL NO. Way to show your little druggie hand, Blogger.
