Easy Summer Recipe
I had to be at a meeting last night and I wanted to leave something for Bob for supper. I had some chicken drumsticks on hand and perused my Company's Coming "Slow Cooker Recipes" book to find this.
Frozen concentrate lemonade, thawed 1/2 of 12.5 oz.
Brown sugar packed 3 tbsp.
Ketchup 3 tbsp.
White vinegar 1 tbsp.
Liquid gravy browner 1 tsp.
Chicken breasts 6
Stir first 5 ingredients in bowl.
Arrange chicken pieces in bottom of 3.5 L slow cooker, overlapping if necessary. Pour lemonade mixture over all. Cover. Cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours or on High for 4 to 5 hours. Thicken gravy slightly.
I used pink lemonade - that's what I had. I didn't have liquid gravy browner so used powdered instead. I think chicken bouillion might give the flavour but not the extra color (not a big problem to me). I used 12 chicken drumsticks instead and the lemonade mixture was enough for that. I browned them under the broiler for a few minutes before putting them in the slow cooker. The slow cooker is so easy for summer meals and it doesn't heat up the whole house.
When I came home there were just a few pieces left for me - so I think Bob liked it!
