Food, Surviving Chaos

Crock-pot Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken Thighs

Brown Sugar and Garlic chicken thighs are one of the easiest recipes I make in my slow cooker. With only 5 ingredients, it is easy to prep, budget friendly and a family favorite. As with all my recipes, you can customize it by adding a little spice with crushed red pepper or by using a different cut of chicken. Enjoy!!


  • 5 chicken thighs (or substitute with chicken breast or chicken wings)
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar packed
    • For deeper caramel flavor, use dark brown sugar


  1. Add chicken, salt, pepper and garlic to Crock-pot (slow cooker).
    1. Do not add any liquids. Chicken thighs naturally release liquids when cooked.
  2. Mix it up then flip chicken to skin side up
  3. Sprinkle on brown sugar
  4. Cook on Low for 8 hours or High for 4 hours
