Spicy Jerk Chicken

Spicy Jerk Chicken / Busy Mom

Flash first made this for me when I was better able to stand spicy food (pre-babies). I loved it then, and I STILL get to love it because it’s so easy to adjust the spicy-ness of this meal. Even our non-spicy-family members think this is a winner!

Spicy Jerk Chicken

4 boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts
3 cups Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
3 cups Brown Sugar, packed
1 can Pineapple Chunks
1 can Mandarin Oranges
1 large can Pears (just the liquid)
4 cups Brown Rice

In a saucepan, combine the hot sauce, brown sugar, and the fruit juices from three fruits. Simmer on medium-low heat for about 7 minutes.

Pour all but two cups into a slowcooker with the chicken and the pineapple and orange chunks. Cook on low for about 7-8 hours. Set aside the extra 1/2 cup of the sauce for the rice.

When the chicken is almost done, cook the brown rice according to package directions, except for substituting 1/2 cup of water with 1/2 cup of the extra sauce.

When the chicken is done, shred or cube it over the rice. Use the set aside juices to pour over top.

Notes: This is for a spicy version. For more mild, just reduce the hot sauce and replace that amount with water. For our kids, we do 1 1/2 cups hot sauce and 1 1/2 cups water substituted. Keep in mind, the pineapple will absorb a lot of the spicy flavor, so they will be spicy!!!
