I’m always on the lookout for chicken recipes and crockpot recipes, so this one fit the bill on both parts. The sauce was soooo good and the chicken came out tender as can be. Served this with mashed potatoes and a salad and had a nice little weeknight meal without heating up the kitchen!
The sauce can be as spicy as you like it – I used the whole 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes and it has quite a kick, so ease back on that if you prefer it milder. This is so easy to make that it’s a staple in my recipe files.
- 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
- 1 1/2 Cup of Sweet Baby Ray’s bbq sauce (or your favorite)
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
Mix all ingredients, except for chicken breasts, in a bowl – combine well. Place chicken in crockpot and pour sauce mixture over the chicken. Cook on low 4-6 hours.
Tips and Stuff:
Easily doubled if you want to use more chicken breasts. I just used plain old white vinegar, but apple cider vinegar would be good and balsamic may make it interesting!
Always use a crockpot liner for easy cleanup.
