What do you do when your husband shops Costco alone and comes home with a case of BBQ sauce? You pull out your Crock Pot and get busy of course! I know when Mr.P calls and says he's running by Costco on the way home to expect a large quantity of a variety of items. Crates of grapefruit, bushels of apples, quarts upon quarts of berries, 4 dozen croissants, or boxes of BBQ sauce. I never know what to expect, but after 27 years, I've learned to be prepared! (Mr.P is an Eagle Scout - he taught me well.)
Last week he walked in with an industrial size bag of frozen, skinless, boneless chicken breast and Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. He eats BBQ sauce on everything. Having little room in my freezer - I've been making and freezing candy for our son's wedding - I pulled ye olde crock pot out and decided BBQ Chicken was on the menu for dinner. This recipe has been floating around for awhile now and couldn't possible be any easier. Throw it all in the pot and leave it alone to cook. You can shred the chicken and make sandwiches or serve the chicken breasts whole with veggies and rice. Be prepared and enjoy!
SWEET BABY RAY'S CROCK POT CHICKEN
SERVES 4 TO 6
SERVES 4 TO 6
- 4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, I used 4
- 1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar, dark or light
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- Mix all ingredients except chicken in the Crock Pot.
- Add chicken to Crock Pot, still frozen is okay, just make sure to allow a bit of extra cooking time.
- Coat chicken well with sauce and turn on LOW.
- Cook for 4-6 hours. Our 4 chicken breasts, thawed, were ready after only 4 hours. Just enough time to run a few errands!
- Shred if you are serving on sandwich buns.
Tips: If you don't like spicy leave the red pepper flakes out of the pot. If you like extra sweet, add a small can of pineapple. Add what you like and leave out the rest. So very easy and delicious.
