The following Sweet and Sassy Crockpot Chicken recipe is the most amazing dish I have ever tasted. The flavors are a cross between Bourbon Chicken and Sweet and Sour Chicken. This recipe is super easy to adapt. While it calls for a whole cut-up chicken, you can also use either bone-in or boneless chicken breasts, but will need to adjust the cooking time.
Before you start cooking Sweet and Sassy Crockpot Chicken, allow me to share a few tips with you.
* If you use chicken breasts, reduce the amount of brown sugar to between 1/2 and 3/4 cup.
* Reduce the cooking time by 75 percent by using breast meat cut into chunks. This method only requires a 2 hour cooking time over low heat.
* Last, but not least, you can also cook this recipe on the stovetop by using boneless chicken breasts cut into strips or chunks.
