    Mark H.'s Note:

    An easy-to-make crock pot chicken dish that is sweet and spicy at the same time. Adjusting the cayenne will adjust the heat in this dish (I always add more).

      Mark, is it terrible to stand over the crockpot sopping up the last dregs of sauce with a piece of French Bread? If so, I am beyond reform. I do think the 8-hour cooking time may be a little long for some crockpots -- mine was done when I checked it after 4 hours. I love the heat, but I used half cayenne pepper and half Chinese Five Spice to cut down on the heat factor for the more timid tastebuds in our family. Thanks for sharing!

      My husband and I thought this was a great tasting dish! The only problem was that the chicken was really overcooked after 6 hours of cooking. It was done before we were quite ready for it. I would recommend cooking it for 4 hours instead of 8. Also, I will add more spice to it next time. (We love anything hot and spicy!!) I will definitely make this one again.
