Standard

This had a great combination of flavors! My husband & I both admitted that it was kind of a mix between mexican & chinese food which sounds odd but it was delicious!
The original recipe called for franks buffalo hot wings sauce but I wanted the kids to be able to eat it so I left it out.

Original recipe from http://www.carlsbadcravings.com

Spray a crock pot with non stick cooking spray. Lay whole chicken breasts in the bottom & then add all other ingredients starting with the spices.
Cook on low for 6-7 hours.

Remove each chicken breast & shred with 2 forks. They should practically fall apart.

Return shredded chicken to the crock pot & stir. I set my crock pot to warm at this time & let it sit for another hour but you can serve it right away also.

I served mine over brown rice but it would be good wrapped up in a tortilla too!

Enjoy!
