Easy Spicy Mustard Crockpot Chicken
Posted on October 08 2014
Who doesn't love a great crockpot chicken recipe?!? This delicious meal is compliments of Vanessa Jay of Plaid and Paleo. Vanessa is a paleo blogger, writer and food connoisseur. She loves the ease of cooking with a crockpot when the weather turns cold, and created this simple spicy chicken recipe as a delicious lunch or dinner.
I have been giving my crockpot some serious loving these last few weeks. Everything goes into one pot and out comes dinner! When you live alone, cooking an extravagant meal for one isn’t very appealing. Most of the time the clean up takes just as long as the actual cooking. That might have something to do with my distaste for using the dishwasher, which I can even admit is strange. I find washing my dishes by hand to be very therapeutic. Just you, the dishes and some sudsy water. It gives me plenty of time to think about whatever I feel like. Normally I’m thinking about why I don’t just use the dishwasher like a normal person.
Along with being on a crockpot kick, I’ve been on a serious chicken kick. Chicken and crockpot just go hand in hand. I never realized how easy chicken is to cook in a crockpot. The biggest bonus is how moist the chicken always turns out! This spicy mustard recipe is not only very easy, but you most likely have most of the ingredients already in your fridge.
**If you can’t find red jalapeños for the chili-garlic sauce, I made this recipe with green jalapeños and it was fantastic! It just changes the color of the sauce a little. You can cut the sauce recipe in half to have less leftover. This sauce is a fantastic spicy addition to any dish!
