Crock pot chicken with barbecue sauce is yummy over rice or served in a sandwich.
I love to be in my kitchen cooking for my family but I have to tell you that summers in Arizona are so hot that some days I just can’t bare the thought of cooking over a hot stove. This is where crock pot meals SAVE my life during the summer. Just throw a few ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and then chill by the pool until dinnertime is how things usually go around my house these days. Use these for a total time saver when you have to clean out your crock pot! These are my favorite. I have tried a lot of barbecue chicken recipes out there and this one is always my go-to recipe. The brown sugar gives the perfect amount of sweetness while the vinegar and pepper flakes throw in that spicy punch of flavor! So so good! Today I’m sharing 2 different ways you can serve this dish.
Crock Pot Chicken With Barbecue Sauce
4-6 chicken breasts
1 bottle of barbecue sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
Mix all the ingredients together, except for the chicken. Put your chicken in the crock pot and pour the barbecue sauce over the chicken. Bake on low for 4-6 hours.
You can serve crock pot chicken a few different ways.
1. Serve it over warm cooked rice. My favorite rice is the Long Grain Brown Rice found at Costco. It does take an hour to cook so just keep that in mind. Drizzle the some of the left over barbecue sauce over the chicken and rice.
2. Shred the chicken and let it soak up the sauce. Take sliced hoagie buns or rolls and add pepper jack cheese slices to the top and broil in the oven until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasty. Serve with potato salad and a pickle and you have a summertime dinner!
