Sweet & Spicy Chicken

For dinner tonight I pulled out an oldie recipe that I had forgotten about. I used to make this all the time and I believe I got it off  The Sisters Cafe Blog a long time ago (click their link for their full recipe). It was nice to make this recipe again cause I love the flavors in this dish! I also love that you can change up the spices, etc you put in it to your liken’. 😉

Ingredients I had on hand and used: (I doubled this recipe to be able to freeze)

8 chicken breasts

1 large can diced tomatoes & 1 small can tomatoes with chipotle (for something different-could use also Ro-Tel)

1 cup brown sugar

garlic salt to taste

cayenne or crushed red pepper to taste

fresh chopped cilantro

*I dumped in the chicken breasts and then poured all other ingredients (except cilantro) on top in the crockpot and cooked for about 6 hours. When its done, shred the chicken with two forks and combine with the juices. Let simmer until ready to serve.

I added chopped cilantro before serving. We eat it in lettuce cups but it can also be served with rice – which is usually how I serve it up to my kids. It is also good with homemade Chipolte Cilantro Lime Rice or can be eaten with tortillas. The possibilities are endless.
