Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

Last week while reading Prudy's blog Prudence Pennywise (as I'm sure many of you read as well) I was inspired to make her Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Chicken. I have said this before, and I'll say it again, I'm always looking for easy to prep recipes during nap time, that still taste great and aren't cold by the time the husband gets home. After running to soccer then the grocery store I was able to whip this up in no time. Thanks, Prudy! This recipe is a winner.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Chicken (tacos) from Prudence Pennywise. You can find Prudy's exact recipe HERE, as well as check out her mouth watering photos. For my measurements see below:
3lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
Two cans petite diced tomatoes in their juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon (eyeball) crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon (eyeball) cumin
1/2 teaspoon (eyeball) chili powder
Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray. Arrange chicken on bottom and season with pepper. Stir in tomatoes, brown sugar and spices. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or high4-6 hours.
I served ours taco style with corn tortillas and all the taco fixings. I've made enough chicken to use in several other dishes for the remainder of the week.
So, thanks again Prudy for another fantastic dish. This one will be a keeper at my house!

I think it is time I bought a slow cooker - looks delicious, and I agree it is such a relief when everyone in the family has the same thing for dinner (even if it is at different times!)

I have really got to use the slow cooker more often. You and Prudy are an inspiration.

I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you so much. I owe you one too, since I loved that slow cooker recipe you posted from MS.
