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
Delicious and super easy Barbecue Chicken cooked in the crock pot.
Servings 4 to 6
- 4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 bottle (18 ounces) barbecue sauce (we like the ‘Sweet Baby Ray’s' brand)
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes optional, and amount depends on your heat tolerance)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a large greased crock pot ( I use a 7 quart).In a medium bowl, mix together barbecue sauce, vinegar, garlic powder and red pepper flakes, if using. Stir sauce and then pour over chicken. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar.
- Close with lid and cook on low heat for 3 hours. (The last 30 minutes of cooking, remove the lid from crock pot and let water evaporate to thicken sauce). Serve warm and enjoy!

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!
I have to leave in crock for 8 hours while at work will this be very dry and not worth cooking?????
Patricia, I wouldn’t leave it in for 8 hours. It will be extremely over-cooked.
WOW! I made this recipe over the weekend! All of the family LOVE it! They want me to make it again on Saturday! Once the chicken was done I let it cool, and shredded it just like pulled pork. YUM YUM!! LOVE your recipes!!
Does it need to look on low, medium or high??
