Sweet & Spicy Slow-Cooker Chicken

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (14 oz) can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (I use about 1/4 teaspoon)

Coat the inside of your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Place all ingredients in the crockpot. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours, or until chicken shreds very easily with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Chicken will absorb liquid after it is shredded.) Serve in tacos or however your little heart desires.

***We loved this recipe. I skimped on red pepper flake the first time around, but I think that anywhere between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon would be fine. I like to keep it not "spicy" for the toddler.***
