Sweet and Spicy Crock Pot Chicken




I love warm weather but am not a fan of using my oven when it's hot outside. Since I am always using my crock pot I am always looking for new meal ideas. Tonight's dinner was created by experimenting with ingredients I already had on hand. I knew my husband would love this since he loves anything spicy. As do I!

Sweet and Spicy Crock Pot Chicken
Serves 4
WW PP=7 Chicken+1 Cup Brown Rice
Cal 278, Fat 0g. Carbs 39.5, Fat 0g, Fiber 2g, Protein 27.5

Ingredients
16 oz. boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
1 tbsp. fiery pepper seasoning blend (I used McCormicks)
3 tbsp teriyaki sauce (I used La Choy)
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tbsp. lime juice
pinch red pepper flakes
4 cups hot cooked rice

Place chicken in crock pot and sprinkle with pepper seasoning. In a small bowl whisk together teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, and lime juice. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low 4 hours. Break chicken into pieces and serve over hot cooked rice. Enjoy!

Note-If you want a thicker sauce whisk in one tablespoon cornstarch.
