Apple Cider Glazed Chicken

This is an easy and spicy meal.  Perfect to start off on a Sunday morning before the football games begin in the crock pot and then all you have to do is make the glaze and sides and you have dinner.

2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder

Mix the brown sugar and spices in a bowl or on a plate.  Rub the chicken pieces with the mixture and place in your crock pot.  Cook over medium heat for 5 hours.  Make the glaze and brush it on 15 minutes before serving.
