Crock Pot Barbecue Chicken

   Hello friends! I have another ridiculously easy crock pot recipe for you to try! I loved this chicken. It had tons of flavor and was a nice little change-up to the every day barbecue chicken we all make. The recipe calls for a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and some extra additions that make it taste amazing! We ate this with a side of veggies and loved it. Next time, I think I’m going to shred the chicken and make us some BBQ Chicken Sliders with it. Oh yeah!
Crock Pot Barbecue Chicken
adapted from: Stick a Fork In It
4-6 boneless, skinless Chicken breasts
1 (18 oz) bottle Barbecue Sauce ( I used ‘Sweet Baby Ray’s’)
2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper flakes (optional)
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
DIRECTIONS:  Place chicken breasts in the bottom of crock pot. In a medium bowl mix together barbecue sauce, vinegar, garlic powder and red pepper. Stir sauce and then pour over chicken. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Close with lid and cook on low for 3 hours. (The last 30 minutes of cooking, remove the lid from crock pot and let water evaporate to thicken sauce) Serve!

    I notice you cook a lot of broccoli. Broccoli is my favorite too. I make it as my side veggie for most dinners :-) Your blog is amazing. I look forward to all the recipes you post. I’ve made a ton and haven’t been disappointed yet! Keep up the great work.

    This looks super simple and really tasty. All I need is some bbq sauce. I’m from SLC and I remember bbq chicken dishes like this over rice my grandma use to make. So good!

    Looks delicious! I just posted a recipe for Barbecue Chicken. To make it in the crockpot, I use chicken breasts like you do, and right before serving, I shred the breasts while they are still in the pot, with two forks and voila – pulled chicken barbecue sandwiches. Great with cole slaw on top and be sure to use good rolls for the sandwiches. Enjoy!
