Easy Recipes: Crockpot BBQ Chicken

A few months back my friend Kim shared a crockpot secret with me. A solution I had not thought of.

She told me she makes BBQ in the crockpot all the time.

Brilliant.

So I tried it. Totally simple. My children devoured it.

And now it is a regular on my weekly meal plan.

And in the summer with all the Texas heat, this is a great way to enjoy a delicious summery food without heating up the oven.

Brace yourself. This is beyond simple. And like most of the recipes I share here, this doubles easily when feeding a large family.

Ingredients:

  • 10-12 chicken drums or 6 large chicken breasts
  • 1 container of your favorite BBQ sauce

 

Place your uncooked chicken in the crockpot.

Cover the chicken in your favorite BBQ sauce.

I even add a little bit of water to the container to get the last of the remnants out.

There is really no need to smear each piece of chicken with the sauce. As it cooks, it all gets coated.

Put the lid on it and cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10.

When it is done, this is how your chicken will look.

Plate it up and serve.

My kids like mac and cheese with their BBQ chicken.

Throw in some fresh cut pineapple, some carrot sticks and cantaloupe cubes and you have a winner!

    Whoa. Love that–so easy! Next time drumsticks are on sale, I’m going to do this, because I love crockpot meals. I’ve discovered I like to prep, then clean it all up so that when dinner comes, all I have to do is fix side dishes and serve. I like to bake things like quiche, too, for the same reason: prepare, clean up, bake, eat. But the kids aren’t so crazy about quiche. :)

    Hi Crystal,
    What a great “cool”, as in don’t heat up the kitchen, recipe. I just love to have a recipe like this to help out on these hot days. Hope you are having a great week end and thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.

    Great idea! My kids love drumsticks (“chicken with a handle” at our house!). I have also done this with pork chops and BBQ sauce, then “pulled” the meat with two forks and served on buns. Ya gotta love a two-ingredient recipe!
