Honey Garlic Chicken

1 onion, sliced
1 large package of cut up chicken pieces
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda

Place onion on bottom of crock pot. Place chicken on top of onion. In a large bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and brown sugar. Stir until honey and sugar are completely dissolved, then stir in the baking soda. The mixture will begin to foam. Pour over chicken and cook on low until done (I used split chicken breasts and my crock pot cooks hot so they were done in about four hours, on low).
NOTE: I turned the chicken about halfway through to make sure both sides were covered with the sauce.

Tilapia in Aluminum Foil

-- 3 or 4 filets of Tilapia (or other favorite white fish)
--1/4 cup mayonnaise
--1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar. I've made it before with Parmesan and it was amazing. If I was planning a trip to the store specifically to get ingredients for this dish I would pick Parmesan.)
--juice of 2 lemons
--4 chopped garlic cloves
--pinch each of salt and black pepper
The Directions:
--mix all ingredients (except for the fish. definitely not the fish.) in a bowl
--lay out a piece of foil--rub sauce mixture on both sides of fish
--fold foil over and make a little packet for the fish
--put all the packets into the crockpot

--cook on LOW for 2-4 hours; fish should flake easily with a fork
PLEASE take care when taking the packet out of the crockpot and when opening it. It will be hot.
Tiffany's Notes: I used 4 smallish size fillets. I subbed sour cream for mayo since I didn't have any. I used grated parmesean from the shaker and forgot to put in the garlic. My crockpot cooks hot so I put them in for 4 hours on low and they were perfect.
I hope I formatted this correctly, if not, let me know and I will do better next time!
