Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

I’ve said it multiple times, and I will say it again…I am all about easy crock pot meals!  I love my crock pot and would be one sad girl without it! I came across this recipe a few months ago and have been using it ever since!  This chicken is SO easy to throw together and my husband Loves it!


4-6 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle BBQ sauce (we love Famous Daves)
1/4 c vinegar
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp. garlic powder

Mix BBQ sauce, vinegar, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, and garlic powder together.Place chicken in crock pot.
Pour sauce over it and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

    I'm doing this now as I type! LOL I didn't want to add additional sugar, as I try to avoid putting sugar in anything, so I added agave instead, instead of plain vinegar I used apple cidar vinegar and some finely diced white onion. It's not going to taste just like yours but when I tasted it prior to adding the chicken, it was pretty doggone yummy!

    isn't the vinegar and brown sugar just... more bbq sauce? This is essentially chicken and bbq sauce in a crockpot, with seasoning (that would likely be in the bbq sauce itself). Why not make it 'really' easy and just put chicken and bbq sauce in a crockpot?

    would you be able to make this ahead of time and freeze? would it still be good you think?

  22. Julie

    How big is the BBQ sauce bottle?

    I absolutely love this recipe. I found it about 2 years ago and have made it many times ever since. We use Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ sauce and it turns out so yummy!
