Here’s another easy crockpot dish for busy nights. I doubled the recipe and used leftovers on a baked potato as well. Both ways where tasty.

Slow Cooker Zesty Barbecue Chicken

2 to 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (fresh)1 cup onion, chopped (optional, but highly recommend)

1/4 cup light brown sugar


Lightly spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

Top chicken with diced onion (optional). Mix remaining ingredients (bbq sauce, Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar). Pour sauce over chicken.

Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours, until chicken is tender and easy to shred. 

When ready, shred with two forks.

Reduce slow cooker temperature to low and cook an additional hour. Cooking the extra hour allows the yummy sauce to absorb into the chicken.

Serve chicken piled high on your favorite rolls along with your favorite barbecue sides – coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, baked potatoes, french fries, veggies, salad and more. Enjoy!



Use leftover chicken to make BBQ pizza, serve on top of rice, baked potatoes or salad. Also makes an awesome wrap.
