Slow Cooker Brown Sugar & Mustard Chicken

   

If you are looking for a simple, quick, but very delicious meal to throw into the crockpot for dinner tonight, you have to try this Brown Sugar & Mustard Chicken! I am working on taking advantage of my Slow Cooker more often. What really makes using the Crockpot appealing is not having to worry about thawing out meat or coming home and scrambling to get dinner on the table.

I used Chicken Breast this time, but you can use any part of the chicken you wish. (The breasts were frozen, which didn't matter a bit. Just keep on high for at least 7 hours.)
