If you’re looking for an easy dinner with tons of flavor, this is it! Simply add all of the ingredients into your crock pot and walk away. You end up with moist, easily shreddable chicken with a nice spicy flavor. It does have a lot of kick so if you don’t like things hot, go a little lighter on the cayenne.
And to save a little more time, I used an Uncle Ben’s packet of white Ready Rice. Absolutely perfect for a quick healthy weeknight meal.
