Crock Pot BBQ Chicken

This is a super easy meal that is great.   I am all for something that requires little prep time and is something all the kids eat without complaint.  My husband calls them sloppy joes.  They are a bit sloppy but not a true sloppy joe.  We usually serve them up on a toasted bun, with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar over the top.


  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  •  1/2 cup chopped red onion (opt.)
  • 1 bottle or your favorite BBQ sauce (I do Dinosaur)
  • 1/3-1/2 cup plus few TBSP brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • 1 TBSP worcestershire sauce

Put chicken in the crock pot with onion and a few TBSP of brown sugar.  Cook on high for 2.5 hours or on low for 4.  Pour out juices and save as chicken broth if you want.   Dump 1/2 bottle BBQ sauce and all remaining ingredients.  Taste sauce and add more BBQ sauce and brown sugar, if desired.  Shred chicken with two forks and let simmer in sauce another 45 minutes or however long you need on low.  Can also turn off and keep covered if need to wait longer.  Serve on toasted bun.
*for frozen chicken add about an hour.*
