Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

 

Two of my favorite things – the crock pot and BBQ!  I am depending more and more on my crock pot.  A few years ago, I used it occasionally, and sometimes forgot about it!

Now, I really depend on my crock pot when I have a long day ahead, or know that I won’t have time to really make a good dinner after I get home.  As long as I have a few ingredients on hand, or plan a day or two ahead, I can throw a little into the crock pot in the morning or in the middle of the day, and still have a great meal ready to go!

This BBQ recipe is easy to adjust to your own taste and adjust for a few or several people. And it only has 3 ingredients!  I like things simple and easy, as you can tell.

For a couple of big appetites, the following meal is quick, and goes great with a simple side, like sweet potatoes, mac & cheese, beans, or slaw.

>>>  Place in the crock pot for 4 hours on high, or 6 on medium.

>>>  If desired, add a little extra seasoning to the chicken. I sometimes add some garlic pepper seasoning, and some sweet smoky paprika.

>>>  During the last hour, add 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce.

 

After 4 hours on high, shredded with fork

When finished, the chicken should be tender enough to shred with a fork.  Shred completely before serving.  Add extra BBQ sauce to taste if desired.  This could also be served up on a bun for a BBQ chicken sandwich.
