I love BBQ chicken but where I live grilling isn't always convenient. In the winter, it's too cold and during the summer it's just too hot. So when I get that craving this is my turn-to recipe.

Moist and delicious with this recipe you can get your BBQ chicken fix without having to fire up the grill. It's extremely easy to make. A great way to serve BBQ chicken at a cookout that can be made ahead of time. If you have leftovers (or just want a different option), shred the chicken and serve on Hawaiian rolls. Yum!

How To Make crock pot bbq chicken

  • Chicken placed in the slow cooker.
    Place chicken in Crock Pot. (I throw mine in frozen and it works amazingly. You don't even need to break them apart!)
  • BBQ sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, crushed red pepper, and garlic mixed together in a bowl.
    Mix BBQ sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, crushed red pepper and garlic together in a separate bowl. (Make sure brown sugar is fully blended.)
  • Sauce poured over the chicken.
    Pour BBQ mixture over chicken, making sure to coat the chicken evenly.
  • Crock Pot BBQ Chicken after it's cooked in the slow cooker.
    Replace lid and cook on high for 6 hours. If using thawed chicken reduce time to 4 hours so as not to burn the chicken.
