Spicy Crock Pot Chicken Spaghetti

This is a recipe that was partially invented by my husband. He doesn't cook much, mostly because I take over in the kitchen since it's a hobby for me, but when he tries, he can cook pretty well. He decided he wanted to cook for me one evening. Since I love both spaghetti and chicken parmesan, he decided to come up with a chicken spaghetti sauce that he thought I would like. The spicy part he added because he likes spicy things. I ended up adapting his recipe by adding some small tweaks and adapting it for the Crock Pot, since I love the way chicken falls apart and is tender when slow cooked.
If you are not a fan of spicy things, but you think the idea of chicken spaghetti sauce sounds good, make the recipe just as is, except eliminate the crushed red pepper.

Spicy Crock Pot Chicken Spaghetti

1 jar pasta sauce
½ of an 8 oz. jar sun dried tomato pesto sauce
2 tsp. Garlic powder
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 tsp. Crushed red pepper
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. Sugar
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Stir together all ingredients except chicken in Crock Pot. Place chicken breasts in sauce and cover with some sauce. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Shred chicken with a fork and stir so shredded chicken blends thoroughly with sauce. Serve over prepared spaghetti noodles or other pasta of your choice.
