Sweet ‘n’ Tangy Chicken

Okay, dig out your crock pot from the back of the cabinet to make this delicious recipe! If you don’t own one you don’t know how much of a help this appliance can be.
The aroma from this dish while cooking will make you excited for dinner again. Most of the ingredients you probably already have on hand, so it will be a cinch to put together. You can replace one of your boring weekly chicken dinners with this one. I serve this with white rice, but it would go nicely with mashed potatoes, or egg noodles. Enjoy.

1 med. onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
3lbs boneless, skinless chicken
2/3 c. ketchup
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. hot sauce
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. cold water

In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine onion and garlic; top with chicken. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, chili powder, basil, salt, pepper and hot sauce; pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 to 5 hours or until chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken and keep warm. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over chicken.
