Recipe Walkthrough: Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken Crockpot

A few weeks ago our social media followers raved over the recipe we posted for a Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken Crockpot. Typically this type of response warrants one of us editors trying the recipe out at home, and I again raised my hand with delight!  My previous cooking endeavor was none other than the Bacon Sour Cream Chicken Crockpot, so I figured I might continue my crockpot experimentation.

Fortunately, this was not the first time I’ve combined brown sugar and garlic in a dish. I actually made a brown sugar and minced garlic glaze for an oven baked chicken once, and loved it. And without giving it away too much, I was equally as impressed with the taste in the crockpot version!

I also forget how easy and painless cooking with a crockpot can be. I wish I had more insight and secrets to this recipe, but you literally mix all the ingredients together and pour it over the chicken. Set your slow cooker on your allotted time and walk away. About 30 minutes later you’ll start to get a whiff of the cooked brown sugar and you’ll have to remind yourself there AREN’T cookies in the oven.

Here at Recipe4Living, we love to cook, no surprise. Also unsurprisingly, we hate to have bad breath after eating delicious dishes like a Classic French Onion Soup, Garlic Bruschetta, and the best street food ever, Greek Gyros. Have you ever had a gyros sandwich? Then you definitely know about the bad breath that lasts for at least a couple of hours after eating one.

If you haven’t, why don’t you make one and then go try to kiss your significant other? Your dog probably won’t even want anything to do with you! But bad breath just comes with the territory, right? Not so, say the folks at Scope.

Orange Garlic Pork Chop Walkthrough

Pork Chop With Romaine Salad and Roasted Red Potatoes

In case you missed my earlier blog post, I’ll give you a quick recap: I don’t like pork chops. At least I didn’t, until I tried one at a local restaurant that knocked my socks off. Being the foodie that I am, it was only natural for me to try and recreate it. I can gladly say that my disastrous self stayed put and I was able to pull off a delicious recipe with the help of Suzy Sirloin. It’s not often that raw meat excites me, but when I opened the cooler and took a look at the juicy pork chops, I have to admit I felt like a little kid on Christmas and couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen.  Read the rest of this entry »
