Weeknight Dinner Easy Meal – Sprite Chicken Recipe for the Slow Cooker
Since both of our boys play baseball, during baseball season I’m always looking for easy crockpot dinner recipes. We end up using a slow cooker a lot since it’s an easy way to make meals and have them all ready when you get home. To save time, I came up with this Sprite Chicken recipe for the crockpot that is easy to make and the kids love it. When we are ready to eat, the chicken comes out super tender and moist.
Around 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
2 cans of Sprite
Directions for the Sprite chicken recipe:
If chicken is frozen, then defrost first. Then, rub brown sugar and Kosher salt on both sides of the chicken breasts. Place in a single layer (if possible) inside your slow cooker. Then, pour 2 cans of Sprite into the crock pot along the sides of the pot so that the rub will not be washed away. Cook on low for 4 – 5 hours.
After the chicken is cooked, you have various ways to serve it. You can serve the breasts as is, on top of rice. Another option is to shred the chicken breasts using 2 forks and cover with barbeque sauce. I love putting the shredded barbeque chicken in a bun. Yummy!
