  • Slow Cooker


  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (mine were frozen)
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup onion
  • 4 cups white rice cooked


  • Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • In a sauce pan heat soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and chopped onion over medium heat until boiling.
  • Pour sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
  • Serve over cooked rice.


We also love to serve this with stir-fried vegetables. I just buy a bag from the frozen foods section and fry it on the stove top when the chicken has about 10 minutes left to cook.
You could also dump a bag of frozen stir-fried vegetables into the slow cooker for the last 20 minutes of cook time for the chicken.
