Crockpot Barbecue Chicken

I have to admit that my crockpot is my best friend.  I wish I could get myself more organized to use it everyday.  My life seems so much simpler when I use it.  The dog days of summer are here in Virginia and it is not even summer yet!!  School is not even out yet, they have a full week left of school which means exams, concerts, and awards assemblies.  I feel like I have been running the roads every evening for something school related.  I think I will be just as excited when school lets out as my son. 

This chicken recipe is so easy and is a family favorite.  This is very versatile to make with any cut of chicken.  If you like thighs better, than use them instead!  Chicken breasts to me seem to dry out in the crockpot, so I am not a huge fan of just using breast meat, but that is what I had on hand.  I shredded the leftovers up and had a barbecue chicken sandwich for dinner the next night. 

Place the desired chicken pieces in the crockpot.  Season with salt, pepper, or any seasonings you prefer and a little onion if you like.  Pour a bottle of barbecue sauce over the chicken.  Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 4 hours.  I have a tendency to forget to defrost so these were completely frozen when I put them in.

My best piece of advice to give you is to spray the crockpot with non stick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner before placing the food in.  Makes clean up so much easier.  Also, fill your crockpot at least 3/4 full so that it cooks properly.  Otherwise you will overcook your meat. I really hope you get to try this soon. 

Served Up With Love!
