I’r going to get to rub it on my lap. Get the cheese! Oh get her [ __ ] girl gold backing on her Becca, my not a fair enough! So welcome back to my blog today. I’r going to show you guys how to make a simple Sunday dinner with only 5 ingredients. So it’s going to be really easy, especially if you have a slow cooker. You can use the oven if you like to, but I’d rather use a slow cooker, just because I’m in the military and just in case I want to put it on, go to work and it’d be done by the time I come home.
It will be perfect. Rather than just putting it in the oven and hovering over it so stay tuned. So today I am making brown sugar, garlic, chicken or garlic brown sugar chicken. However, you decide to phrase it so I have chicken thighs. I have garlic. I have salt and pepper, and I have brown sugar. So those are your five ingredients builder everything that you need now. If you decide to put more stuff on it, then that’s perfectly fine, but I am making this article strictly for those that may not have a lot in their kitchen but they’re, trying to cook a nice meal or that they don’t feel like running to the store Which is understandable because I really hate going grocery shopping, but these are the five ingredients.
So this is my slow cooker. My crock-pot, depending on how many quarts yours is, depends on how many chicken thighs you can fit in now. I prefer chicken thighs over chicken breast because with the chicken thighs the skin is going to give it juice and you’ll see once I start cooking it, the juice will come from the skin, so you don’t have to add any type of water or anything in there. It’s just strictly chicken in the ingredients, okay, so the first thing that I like to do is I like to take the chicken out of the pack, and I like to put the chicken in the crock pot, simply because I want to know how many can fit In there, so I’m not over seasoning or putting too much in there so usually with mine.
I can’t leave it about, or in there they’re really big. I can fit five. If I would like and it’ll be okay, so I might just do I might find a smaller piece and then I’ll put five in there, so our other ingredients will include two tablespoons of garlic minced. I did that you can use fresh garlic or you can use the garlic, that’s already minced and it’s like it comes in a glass or so, and then you have one teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper itself.
I just like some mixed mind. Together my salt and pepper together, so that I could just automatically sprinkle it on top and then last but not least, you have 1/3 cups of brown sugar. Now I like to use a little more because I like mine, kind of sweet – and I also like my garlicky – so I just used a little more garlic and a little more brown sugar. So these are the ingredients. Those are the measurements I’m going to also put this recipe in the description bar, so you guys can see it, and hopefully it works out just as well for you as it did for me.
So once your chicken is cleaned, usually I take a paper towel and I just make sure I pat dry all of the chicken so once you do that, it’s just better to not have all that excess water in there. Let’s go ahead and do that and then I put it in the crock pot. Now, once you finish, cleaning your chicken, you just place it in the crock pot, already sprinkled a little brown sugar on there just to pack it on the skin.
I like to make sure that the skin is very, very seasoned, so what you do is, you will add the salt and pepper and the garlic to it. So what are you to do for my little cup like this sprinkle it on there so just kind of make sure it’s evenly distributed, so you do that. You also add the garlic, so I’m going to add the garlic. I have some minced garlic. That was like already in the jar than I have some garlic that I chopped up simply because I love love, love, garlic and I like for it to be really garlicky.
So you just go ahead and you evenly put those in there now. What I like to do, since it is in on this chicken, sometimes I just like to you – know, put some underneath the skin make sure it’s like evenly distributed everyone’s getting some garlic. All the chickens are getting some garlic, I mean you just put it all. So you just put it in there, put it in between and everything all the garlic juices and everything and then last but not least, you will go ahead and add your brown sugar, so you sprinkle the brown sugar in there.
However much you would like this is how much I’m using and then you just sprinkle it like that and I’m like I said it. I use 1/3 cup of brown sugar. What kind of a little more! But it’s really up to you. You will see how the skin and the brown sugar is going to produce so much juice, and it’s going to be so delicious. Now, there’s other ways of doing this recipe. You can do this same recipe in the slow cooker and you can actually wrap your chicken and bacon if you like that, everyone looks speaking and if you use regular bacon or use turkey.
Breaking is your preference, but I just like to make sure that I’m fully getting everything that’s in there and that’s under it, and it’s going to be amazing, see that’s enough brown sugar and I didn’t even use all of the brown sugar hat. So, of course, just a little bit more and that is it for me, so you can cook this on low for eight hours or you can use it on high for 4 hours. So since I started dinner a little late, I’m going to go ahead and click.
My on high and I’m going to cook it for four hours. Isn’t it lovely look at that y’all! Look at all that love and their brown, sugar, garlic, salt, pepper, this dinner going to be amazing and I’m going to pair this with asparagus and corn. Although my fiancee, I want to eat french fries because that’s all he eats but we’re going to get some veggies because we go back to work tomorrow from being off for two weeks, our later three hours later you you, you, you you you, you
