Crockpot BBQ Chicken Recipe

Crockpot BBQ Chicken is a great easy freeze recipe for a busy day.

Crockpot BBQ Chicken is a great easy freeze recipe for a busy day.  I always have BBQ sauce in my stockpile so for me this is a very affordable recipe too.  You can use any brand of BBQ Sauce that you like.  We personally like to use Baby Rays, but I will use anything that I find on sale.  Best of all if you are feeding a large crowd this is a budget savvy recipe that will be easy on your budget.  I like to add a little Jack cheese when it comes out of the crockpot and serve with Baked Potatoes and veggies.

It is simple to make.  Just add raw chicken and BBQ sauce into a zip-loc freezer bag.  When ready to cook thaw in the refrigerator overnight.  Place into the slow cooker in the morning and cook on low for 6-8 hours on low for 4 hours on high.  The longer you cook it the more tender it becomes.  You can also easily shred this after you cook it and create a pulled BBQ chicken that is delicious to eat on a bun.  Once it comes out of the slow cooker you can slice it to add the cheese to the center or top with cheese.  We like to use Pepper Jack, but you can use Provolone or any other variety that you choose.

This is a very affordable slow cooker meal that the whole family will enjoy.  We eat this Crockpot BBQ Chicken Recipe several times a month because everyone enjoys it so much.  You can even make this with pork chops or a beef roast too!  The options are endless.  Feel free to double when you are serving a large crowd.  It is great for family events, tailgating or game day.   We hope you enjoy this Crockpot BBQ Chicken Recipe as much as we do!  It is soon to be a family favorite once you try it!
