Sweet and Spicy Chicken

Slow cooker meals are the best. I love being able to come home and not worry about dinner. The flavors on this chicken were great! The original recipe is for chicken wings, but there were chicken legs on sale, so I made those instead. The chicken was so tender and I bet it would be delicious with wings!

Sweet and Spicy Chicken-adapted from Taste of Home
Total time: 6 hours
Serves 6

  • 3 pounds chicken (wings, legs, breasts would probably be good too)
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
Place chicken in a 4-5 quart slow cooker. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over chicken. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
