1/4 cup brown sugar
4 chicken breasts
Put all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. (when I made this I didn't measure anything. I used 1/2 bottle bbq sauce and then sprinkled just a little brown sugar on it. ) If it starts looking dry add some water. I shredded my chicken 30 mins before dinner and served it in rolls. It made excellent chicken sandwiches.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs (or mini Sausages)
I got this recipe from one of my mission companions but have forgotten about it until I saw it on a blog so I made it last night for dinner and it was good. Also a very easy recipe for potlucks or other get togethers.
1 12 oz jar Chili Sauce (you can find this by the ketchup at the grocery store. I recommend using Hienz brand over the store brand)
1 16-18oz jar grape jelly*
2lb frozen meatballs or 2-3 packages cocktail sausages
*note that you could use the smaller jar of jelly instead, I think it’s more like 10oz. I like the sweetness of the 18oz jar, but you could make it less sweet with the small jar if you prefer.
Put the ingredients in a crockpot and cook for 2-5 hours on low. Serve with toothpicks for an appetizer or serve meatballs over rice for a quick dinner.
