BBQ Chicken Crockpot Style

Hubby has been a very busy bee this past weekend again, trying to reduce a little bit of the load for me, which I greatly appreciate!

In addition to the sauerkraut and pork dish, he also loaded up the crockpot and made some BBQ Chicken.

Granted, I would have preferred he NOT make a whole crockpot of BBQ Chicken as it only has one 'real' use, and that is BBQ chicken. But alas, I can't squash his good intentions...



BBQ Chicken ... seriously easy

6 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast (I think next time I will suggest chicken thighs with 1 or 2 breast)
1 cube of frozen garlic (or fresh garlic, finely chopped) (Keep an eye out for the garlic tip!)
salt and pepper
finely chopped onion
1/2 cup or so of chicken broth

Sorry for the raw chicken picture, but I wanted you to see how
FINE he chops the garlic onion (!!) courtesy of the food processor!


And look how MUCH seasoning he uses!

That there be the frozen cube of garlic ... post coming SOON, I promise!


Toss all in a crockpot and cook til chicken is done, about 2 to 3 hours on high or 5 to 6 hours on low. Every crockpot is different which drives me NUTS but it is what it is :)

Once chicken is cooked, drain the liquid out of crock and allow the chicken to cool enough where you can shred it with 2 forks OR your hands (oh, go for it!) ... top with bbq sauce of choice and mix well. Make it as wet or dry as you like. Hubby added a touch of garlic powder too at this point.



Serve on a toasted roll with coleslaw on the side.  Enjoy! (Seriously? We used leftover burger and hot dog buns, I buttered up the insides and laid flat in skillet to toast) ... no slaw to be had so we skipped that part. AND we've been eating it just plain in a bowl it's so dang tasty!



NOTE: We used a bbq sauce made by Jack Daniels that was EXTRA SPICY. Also expensive, but a gift ... price tag was $9.95. Some dang good stuff ... and well, like the silver, if you have it, you might as well use it!

  1. This looks really good, and I do have a heavy hand when it comes to spices, too (to the chagrin of my co-workers who get subjected to the aroma of my lunches). I found it interesting that you add the BBQ sauce after cooking; is there a significant difference, or does it come out the same either way?

    1. Erik, it must be a guy thing then :) We usually add the bbq sauce after cooking in the crockpot because of the liquid/fat issue ... there was a LOT of juice to dispose of and these were chicken breast so imagine if it had been dark meat? Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I have been on the hunt for a decent BBQ crockpot recipe for ages now. Thank you for linking up and sharing your recipe at Friday Food Fight.

  3. Thanks for sharing at Dwell on Joy. Put that coleslaw right on top of BBQ chicken - it's a great contrast to the spicy, hot meat!
