Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Chicken


1 pound (about 2) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 (14-ounce) can petite or regular diced tomatoes, undrained

⅓ cup brown sugar

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (add more if you like extra heat)


Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, brown sugar and red pepper flakes.

 Pour over the chicken.

Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-9 hours.

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 

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve in flour tortillas with toppings of choice: lettuce, sour cream, cheese, avocados, etc.

You can combine this excellent recipe with some others from our collection.

Serve 4.


This is a freezable meal: You can freeze the leftovers in a freezer-safe container and let thaw in 
the refrigerator overnight before serving the next day. Just reheat over medium-low heat in a 
saucepan on the stove.
