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.
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.
