This slow cooker meal is a real kid-pleaser. I scooped the soft chicken and sweet-savory sauce over pasta and my kids devoured it! Don’t let the red pepper flakes scare you (or your kids)–they nicely balance out the sugar in the sauce. Leftovers are even yummier the next day. Thanks to Allrecipes.com for the recipe.
