Crock Pot Sweet & Spicy Garlic Chicken

I had to leave my house for a few days because we had a crawl space pipe leak and possible mold issue, so I stayed at my parent's house while my main man stayed at our house with the dogs to work things out. The least I could do was cook him a nice warm meal, especially since he had no water. I came across this recipe from Makin' it Mo'Betta and he loved it. I served it to him with rice and then made it for myself over buttered angel hair pasta. It was a hit. Great crock pot meal, definitely recommend it!
