Ingredients for Chicken in Spicy Sauce

To make a delicious chicken in spicy sauce, you will need a few key ingredients. First, you’ll need boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs. You can use either fresh or frozen chicken for this recipe. Next, you’ll need some vegetables to add flavor and nutrition to the dish. We recommend using onions, bell peppers, and garlic, but you can also add other veggies like carrots or celery if you prefer.

For the spicy sauce, you’ll need a few pantry staples like sweet red chili sauce, crushed red pepper flakes, and minced garlic. You can adjust the amount of spice to your liking by adding more or less of these ingredients.

Finally, you’ll need some optional garnishes to finish off the dish. We suggest topping your slow cooker chicken with fresh cilantro, lime wedges, and sliced jalapenos for an extra kick of flavor. With these ingredients on hand, you’ll be ready to make a delicious and satisfying meal that’s perfect for any occasion.

How to Prepare the Chicken and Vegetables

To prepare the chicken and vegetables for chicken, you will need to gather a few ingredients. Start by rinsing and patting dry 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Then, chop up 1 red bell pepper into bite-sized pieces.

Next, season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste. You can also add any other spices or herbs that you prefer. For example, some people like to add garlic powder, paprika, or cumin for extra flavor.

Once the chicken is seasoned, heat up a large skillet over medium-high heat. (optional) Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet, and then add the chicken. Cook the chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until it is browned and slightly crispy.

After the chicken is browned, transfer it to the slow cooker. Then, add the pineapple chunks and bell peppers.

Stir everything together so that the chicken and vegetables are evenly distributed. Now, you are ready to move on to making the spicy sauce for your dish.



Making the Spicy Sauce for the Chicken

To make the spicy sauce for your slow cooker chicken, you’ll need a few key ingredients. Start by combining all sauce ingredients, except water and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.

Mix these together until they are evenly distributed throughout the sauce.

For an extra kick of heat, you can also add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to taste. Just be careful not to overdo it if you’re sensitive to spice!

Finally, pour the spicy sauce over your prepared chicken and vegetables in the slow cooker. Make sure everything is coated evenly, then set your slow cooker to cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

As the chicken cooks, the flavors will meld together and create a deliciously spicy dish that’s perfect for serving over rice or with a side of crusty bread. Enjoy!

Cooking and Serving Slow Cooker Chicken in Spicy Sauce

Now that you have prepared the chicken, vegetables, and spicy sauce, it’s time to cook and serve your slow cooker chicken in spicy sauce.

Firstly, pour the spicy sauce over the chicken and vegetables in the slow cooker. Make sure that the chicken is fully covered with the sauce. Then, set the slow cooker on low heat for 6-8 hours or high heat for 3-4 hours.

During the cooking process, you can check on the chicken occasionally and stir the ingredients to ensure that everything is evenly coated with the sauce. If you find that the sauce is too thick, you can add a little bit of water or chicken broth to thin it out.

Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and place it on a serving dish. You can garnish it with some fresh herbs like cilantro or parsley for an extra pop of flavor.

The vegetables should also be tender and flavorful by now. Serve them alongside the chicken or as a side dish. You can also serve the slow cooker chicken in a spicy sauce with rice, quinoa, or any other grain of your choice.

In conclusion, slow cooker chicken in spicy sauce is a delicious and easy meal that you can prepare ahead of time and enjoy with your family and friends. With this step-by-step guide, you can spice up your meal and impress your guests with your culinary skills.
