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.
Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken
Only 3 Ingredients! Serves 2-4 people.
4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chicken stock (low sodium, please)
>>> 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.
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.
Serve up with some garlic bread and some candied sweet potatoes or mac & cheese!
