Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken

I've seen many a variation for this recipe.  Some call for chicken wings, some drumsticks, but I went with what I had on hand which is chicken thighs.

Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken

I don't really think there is a rule you have to follow, so go ahead and use whatever chicken you have on hand or whatever pieces your family prefers.

Aside from the greatness of the slow cooker, it's just a good tasting chicken dish, it's sticky and yummy and I think your family will like it.

I'm using Lynn's Kitchen Adventures recipe.

Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken

Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken


* 3/4 cup brown sugar
* 1/4 cup soy sauce
* 2 tablespoons of minced ginger ( I did not have any ginger, so I used 1 teaspoon of ground ginger)
* 4 cloves of garlic, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne or red pepper
* 3 lbs chicken, breast, thighs, legs, etc.
* 1/4 cup water
* 1/4 cup tomato paste

Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoon soy sauce , ginger, garlic, and cayenne pepper.

Brush on chicken and cook under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until chicken is slightly crisp.

But keep in eye on this while it is cooking under the broiler, things can cook quickly when broiling. (You may be tempted to skip the broiling, but it really does help give this a nice sticky and good texture.)

This is how I like serving mine, with a cute little mound of rice. The kids think it's the coolest thing on earth.

Just scoop the rice into a little bowl or whatever shape you want to use, press it in well, then invert it onto the plate nice and slow. Tada!!! Nothing to it :)

Now drizzle a little of the sauce on top....

  3. This looks so good! I'm going to try this. My kids are pretty big chicken eaters, so I'm sure they'll love it. Last week I cooked about 3 different recipes from your blog and they all turned out wonderful and were winners with the whole family, and my children are picky eaters.
