Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken

This recipe is for those days when you don’t feel like doing much preparation.  You can get it all ready the night before and put the chicken in a covered bowl in the refrigerator until you are ready to throw it into the slow cooker.  If you are really pressed for time in your house, then make up jars of spice mixes and store them in canning  jars .

It has a little kick to it and you can either kick up the heat or lower it depending on taste.  I like to take a spicy dish and pair it with something less spicy, like basmati and wild rice.
