Ingredients
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar substitute
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno pepper jelly
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 -10 chicken thigh and/or drumsticks, skinned (2 to 2-1/2 pounds)
Method
Using a 4-quart slow cooker, combine tomato sauce, jelly, lime or lemon juice, tapioca, brown sugar, cumin, and red pepper. Blend thoroughly. Sit the chicken pieces on top of the sauce mixture in slow cooker, flipping pieces a few times to coat. Cook on high heat for 3.5 hours, or low-heat for 7 hours. Serve alone, or with a side of veggies, a salad, or a slice of 100% whole wheat bread.
