Brown Sugar Glazed Chicken

Have I mentioned before that I love Stephanie O’Dea’s Crock Pot Blog? I think my last post was the first time I mentioned it. So there ya go: I love it. She seems so down-to-earth and I have been following her blog since she made her 2008 NYE resolution to use her slow cooker once a day for the year. I got this chicken recipe from her as well.  She said it was good and not too sweet and for the most part, I agree.  However, I made this while in a brief two-week-long freezer-cooking phase and it definitely tastes less-good each time it’s reheated.  Also, make sure you have enough sauce/glaze on everyone’s piece.  Additionally, I find that chicken breaks up in the crock pot, so my chicken breasts never remain whole.  That’s not entirely a bad thing, and these could have easily been served as sandwiches, also.
