I found the inspiration for this recipe in the cookbook that came with my new slow cooker. I do not keep chili sauce in my RV pantry so I just mix some ketchup, brown sugar, cayenne pepper and lemon juice until it tastes good. This gives a similar flavor without having to crowd my small RV fridge with another partially used condiment bottle. You could adjust this sauce any way you like, but it is really good just like this. In my slow cooker this recipe was done much faster than the suggested time so be sure to check on it occasionally starting about an hour before the end. I like chicken thighs but boneless skinless breast meat would be just as good.
2 pounds chicken thighs or breasts
3 or 4 potatoes, sliced
1 onion, sliced
3 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoon mustard
2 Tablespoon chili sauce
2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
2 teaspoon sugar
Layer the onions then the potatoes in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place the chicken pieces on top of the vegetables. Mix the remaining ingredients and spread over the chicken. Add 1/4 cup of water or broth. Cover and cook 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
Serves: 3 to 4
