Delicious! I used cajun seasoning with red bell peppers and forgot the hot sauce. A very good meal for sandwich night served with fruit salad. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having again often!
I was short on time so I simmered this on the stovetop rather than in the crockpot. I only used one pound of chicken breasts- if I did it with more chicken, I think I'd double the sauce- there wasn't enough for "dipping" using my stovetop method. This had more flavor than I expected with so few ingredients. I'd probably make this again- thanks for sharing!
Greta football watchin fare. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and it was easy to throw together in the morning and have ready a half time. I used Sue L's recipe for Jerk seasoning #29317 which worked perfectly as it makes exactly 3 tbsp. Thanks Nurse Di for sharing the recipe.
