I've been venturing into the world of slow cooking and this one caught my eye. I really liked how it turned out and it was great on tacos. Bill thought it was a little too sweet for him, and while I didn't mind the sweetness I will probably cut back a little on the brown sugar and maybe use diced tomatoes with Jalapenos to mix it up a bit.
Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Chicken
From: Mel's Kitchen Cafe
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (14oz) can petite or regular diced tomatoes, undrained
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1. Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, brown sugar and red pepper flakes. Pour over the chicken.
3. Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-9 hours.
4. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and shred with two forks. Return to the slow cooker and mix the chicken with the juices from the tomato/brown sugar sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with tortillas with toppings of choice: lettuce, sour cream, cheese, avocados, etc.
