Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken

from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 Tbsp of minced ginger OR 1 tsp ground ginger

4 cloves of garlic, minced OR 1 tsp dried minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon of cayenne or red pepper

3 lbs chicken, breast, thighs, legs, etc.

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup tomato paste

Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar,  2 Tbsp soy sauce , ginger, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Add chicken and toss to coat. Place in a slow cooker and cook on low for about 4 hours or until done.

When done place chicken in a broiler proof dish. Combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar, water, and tomato paste, and remaining soy sauce. Brush on chicken and cook under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until chicken is slightly crisp. But keep in eye on this while it is cooking under the broiler, things can cook quickly when broiling. (You may be tempted to skip the broiling, but it really does help give this a nice sticky and good texture.)
