After an out of town crazy weekend that had so much prep and work, I'm not interested in cooking. Freezer meals and our crockpot is my friend. While I knew I wanted to do chicken of some sort - I didn't know what to do for chicken in the crockpot. Andy rattled off a bunch of stuff we could just toss in the crockpot with the chicken, "onion soup mix, because no crockpot meal should be with out it." While I do agree that idea had merit, I wasn't feeling any of his ideas.
I found this BBQ Chicken Recipe and we both agreed it could be a winner. Having just been to Nashville and had our fill of BBQ Pulled Pork, I wasn't sure how this would rate, it was awesome. Our kids couldn't get enough of it! We used Sweet Baby Rays for the BBQ Sauce and oh it was good. I was also spoiled that I didn't actually put it together, Andy did that part. I'm so thankful he's willing to help make meals and get dinner ready. Sure makes things easier to manage.
Give this one a try - maybe even toss some coleslaw on top - we did and it was awesome.
The Best Crockpot BBQ Chicken
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Rays)
1/4 cup Zesty Italian dressing
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt to taste
1. Season chicken breast lightly (a small pinch per breast) with some sea salt and place in your crockpot.
2. In a mixing bowl combine BBQ sauce, Italian dressing, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until well combined.
3. Pour over chicken, cover and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours.
4. Once time is up, you can serve the breast whole, or shred with 2 forks. If shredding, recover and let cook in sauce for about 10-15 more minutes to soak up all the flavor.
