Crockpot BBQ Chicken

Crockpot BBQ Chicken

When it’s 116 degrees outside your crockpot gets lots of attention. My affection for that little magical machine grows every time I prepare dinner without heating up the entire house. I think everyone should own a crockpot, it’s that great. Really.

I must confess then when I throw random ingredients in the pot and then come home that evening to dinner I feel like I’m in an episode of the Jetsons. Ingredients in, turn it on and POOF! Dinner. Unknown-1

It could possibly be that we live in a country where pork is prohibited (sad, I know) and haven’t had a good BBQ sandwich in years, it could also be that this makes a really good BBQ chicken sandwich, you decide. I’m good with either option.

Unknown-2I found this recipe online and have made it several times. I then emailed the recipe to friends and my boys ask me regularly to make it for dinner…that means it needed to go here so you could enjoy it as well.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (can be frozen)

1 cup BBQ sauce

1/4 cup Italian dressing

1/4 cup brown sugar

Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper to taste


Season chicken lightly with salt and pepper and place in crockpot. In a separate bowl combine bbq sauce, dressing, brown sugar and Worcestershire. Pour the mixture over the chicken and cook on high for 3-4 hrs.

Serve the chicken whole or shred it with two forks. If you shred it, return it to the crockpot for 10-15 minutes to soak up the sauce.

It can be served in wraps, on salads, over rice or my favorite…as sandwiches.
