Crockpot Barbecue Chicken

I really love using  my crockpot, especially during the week, so when I found this recipe on Pinterest, I grabbed my phone (cuz that's where my pinterest app is).. and ran to my kitchen to throw this together for supper. It only took me about 5 minutes...(most of that time I was wrestling with a pan and a cupboard door, if I hadn't had that little problem it would have taken me hardly any time at all!) Then 6 hours later my family had a delicious supper and my kitchen didn't even look like a disaster.  I love that about crockpot cooking! This recipe came from forkinit.blogspot.com. Her chicken picture looked much yummier than mine, but you get the general idea.

Here's what you need for Crockpot Barbecue Chicken:
  • 4-6 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts, I threw them in half frozen...my crockpot manual said I could..so I did... check your manual, or defrost them first
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce, I used Sweet Baby Ray's 18 oz size, use what you like, it doesn't matter if you use more but I had plenty of sauce left and I used 6 breasts
  • 1/4 c vinegar ( I used apple cider vinegar, but her recipe didn't say)
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/2-1 tsp. garlic powder, I used fresh minced
Mix BBQ sauce with all the ingredients. Put chicken in crockpot, pour sauce over it and cook on low 4-6 hours. Super simple!!  Mine was in there a little longer than 6 hours...I got too excited and realized after I threw it in my crockpot that it was only 10:30 in the morning- but it was still super moist and delicious! Served with a side of veggies and a batch of cornbread...that will be posted later  because it was eaten before I got a picture of it! Hope you love it!
