Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Garlic Chicken

I put this in the crock pot before church on a Sunday. It was falling apart tender by lunch time. We really liked this one and will be making it many times.

Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Garlic Chicken

2lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts (cut into 6 fillets)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup diet lemon lime soda Beth used diet Mountain Dew
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp cornstarch
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Salt and pepper chicken breasts and place in slow cooker.

2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (all EXCEPT the cornstarch), and pour over chicken.

3. Cook on low for 6 hours.
4. Remove chicken from slow cooker and pour all the leftover sauce into a medium sized sauce pan, and set over medium high heat.

5. In a very small bowl, mix together the cornstarch with two tablespoons of water. Then, add that into the sauce. Bring to a simmer, and stir continuously until sauce begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for about 1-2 more minutes as the sauce will thicken more as it cools.

6. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
