Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken

Vow to myself...try to use the slow cooker more.  Yes, it does take some planning, but it is soooooo easy and makes the week nights so much more productive for other things...like looking for more recipes to try out.  hehehe 
But really, I don't know that I have had a slow cooker recipe not turn out and this one is no different.  The chicken is soft and falls off your fork, the sauce reduced down blends the rice and chicken together.  Now, all I really need is a side dish...like a light salad to balance out the rich and smooth chicken and rice. 



This is so tasty that I have decided to award it...
