Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy Citrus Chicken

Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy Citrus Chicken

It's been a while since I shared a slow cooker recipe. This sweet and spicy citrus chicken is another super easy recipe to add to your cooking to-do list. It's so easy, it's almost mind blowing. It comes together with just a few all natural ingredients that I think you'll love. Well, my husband does and that says a lot since he's such a picky eater.  I kid not. This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

I also added a bit of honey for an extra hint of sweet flavor to compliment the citrus. Then, I chose red pepper flakes to add a spicy kick. The combination of sweet and spicy gives this chicken a ton of flavor even though there are just a few ingredients.

This makes me wish that I didn't get rid of my slow cooker! I will have to see how I can make it without it because now I am craving it!

I think I would die without my slow cooker. LOL! All kidding aside I'm sure you could use a meat thermometer to time this in the oven also.

This is one of my favorite ways to cook chicken- and I bet it would be delicious for a ham steak (Easter) too! I love the vibrant flavors and minimal effort. I think I'd add just a few slices of pineapple. I'll have to keep an eye out for Noble juices near me!
